Credenza by Patricia Urquiola for Spazio Pontaccio
Updated: Jan 6, 2020
Spazio Pontaccio introduces Credenza, a capsule collection of furniture that merges the contemporary design of Patricia Urquiola with the graphic skills of Federico Pepe, Le Dictateur.
Its name carries the essence of the concept: “Credenza,” which in Italian means both a cupboard and one’s belief. It’s a series of furniture in stained glass that is inspired by the windows of holy sites as the ones created by Gerhard Richter for Cologne’s Cathedral.
The meeting between an antique sacred inspiration and its reinterpretation in the form of the design is well reflected in the production process of the collection. Credenza is characterized by contemporary patterns, colors and materials; it is produced in Italy by artisans skilled in the thousand-year old manual technique of stained glass, generally used for the architectures and the decorations of the churches. Credenza is available as both a cabinet , vertical, and a sideboard in horizontal shape.
