I had decided I wanted to focus my Pecha Kucha on a female designer as I feel female designers are not as recognised as male designers. I wanted to really connect with my chosen hero and I felt a great way to do this, would be to study and research a female designer. Patricia Urquiola is a Spanish designer and architect who I chose to research and be inspired from. She focuses on Italian design and in fact studied in Italy.
She describes herself as “Spanish by birth, Italian by choice”.
