Extending from her successful ‘Jellies’ tableware for the Italian ‘Kartell in Tavola’ collection – launched in 2014— Patricia Urquiola brings forth new additions, which express similar surface finishes and patterns, in the form coat hangers, wall-mounted book shelves and a storage unit. The pieces are presented for the first time in Milan, Italy, during iSaloni 2015 – Salone del Mobile Milano.

The ‘Jellies’ coat hangers are a line of wall-mounted hooks which take the form of a button. Recalling the line of tableware, the designs feature a variety of patterns and rich textures that offer visually interesting reflections. Made from coloured and transparent plastic, the ‘jellies’ coat hangers are reminiscent of faceted crystals and their multiple geometries.

The ‘Kite’ shelf was born out of Urquiola’s desire to create a system of various customizable wall compositions. each unit contains a coloured grid that enriches the surface of the transparent plastic from which they are made. the geometric pattern expresses a three-dimensional graph between external and internal lines.

The functional components of Urquiola’s ‘Dewey’ bookshelf are divided by material, in which plastic acts as the vertical partitions, spaced from the wooden horizontal shelves. Appearing as a jewel box in its entirety, the plastic elements feature a rounded and swollen surface. This detail was employed to achieve volumes that result in a bit of an optical lens and materiality, similar to glass. The material solidity of the shelves are suitable for hosting objects for different living situations — from the bathroom to the dining room, from the bedroom to the kitchen.
