Patricia Urquiola explores the ancient artisanal Murano glass-blowing techniques.

Sestiere is a contemporary interpretation of the ancestral mastery of glass art, typical of the island of Murano. The collection includes four vases crafted thanks to the capabilities of this small island and its artisans specialized in glass production. The combination of the vivid colour of the vase, a blown glass ball, and the contrasting colour of the cord that envelops it, almost harnessing it, lends great graphic impact. Made of Murano glass, each cord, or ‘morisa’, is applied by hand to the exterior of the vase. Decorated with the typical striped ‘rigadin’ motif of the lagoon, the morise embrace the curves of Sestiere as the artisan designs their shapes while the glass is still hot and malleable.

Pleasingly imperfect, each cord is different from the others, making every vase that comes out of the furnace a unique piece, a visible and tangible expression of artisan craftsmanship.

Two glass processes, two different aesthetic languages, able to harmoniously co-exist to create an unprecedented partnership. Sestiere perpetuates traditional glass processing and creatively reinterprets it in a lively tribute to Venice. The name of the collection itself is also a tribute to the city: this ancient term refers to the six districts into which the city is divided (Cannaregio, Santa Croce, San Polo, Dorsoduro, San Marco and Castello).

Each vase is authenticated by the Cassina logo sandblasted into the bottom of the base.

She studied architecture at the Polytechnic University of Madrid and further pursued her education at the Milan Polytechnic, where she completed her degree in 1989. Under the guidance of Achille Castiglioni, her supervisor, Urquiola's time in Milan significantly influenced her design style and philosophy.

Throughout her illustrious career, Urquiola has collaborated with numerous esteemed design brands, including Cassina, Driade, Serralunga, and San Lorenzo, among others.

Urquiola's creative portfolio spans various design disciplines, encompassing furniture, lighting, textiles, and interior design. Notably, her work with Cassina as their creative director since 2015 has resulted in remarkable pieces such as the SESTIERE Vase and the Armchair DUDET, which would complement an abstract space beautifully. Her creations have received international acclaim, earning her prestigious awards like the Designer of the Year at the Maison Objet Paris fair in 2013 and the Order of Isabella the Catholic in Spain in 2010.
