Born in Oviedo, a town of Northern Spain, Patricia Urquiola studied first in Madrid and then in Milan where in 1989 she graduated from the Milan Polytechnic with her thesis supervised by the internationally renowned designer and architect Achille Castiglioni. Even though from a sociocultural point of view she is very attached to the Spanish tradition, the studies she got involved with influenced her to such an extent that she became of the most important figures of modern Italian design.
From 1990 to 1992 she taught in the role of assistant professor at the Milan Polytechnic, and at the Ensci (Ecole nationale supérieure de création industrielle) in Paris, France. During that period she also started a partnership with the Italian design company Maddalena De Padova where she met another internationally renowned designer, Vico Magistretti, with whom she designed the chair Flower, the sofa Loom, and the horizontal chair Chaise Longue. Like Achille Castiglioni, Vico Mgistretti noticed her talent and advised her to aspire to achieve the highest professional standards at a worldwide level.
From 1993 to 1996 she worked in a design workshop that she had initiated with other designers where she was involved in architectural planning of buildings, interior design, and exhibition design. In 1998 she started partnership with the firm Moroso and created elegant upholstered pieces of furniture that people found irresistible.
Patricia Urquiola while working in harmony with the highest academic standards, also takes into consideration the impact that her products have on the vast public. She focuses on the design of exchangeable units without using modular elements, and successfully creates environments designed to encourage positive feelings and company.
From 1996 she is a coordinator of the design group of the company Lissoni Associati and articulates her professional activity around countless work partnerships with design and architecture companies of worldwide importance like her teachers Achille Castiglioni and Vico Magistretti had wished.

Wow. We love this light in our entryway! It is like a contemporary jewel on the ceiling -- with lovely light shadows/textures. It is just the perfect welcome to our home. We loved it so much that we also bought the large pendant fixture to hang down/over our spiral staircase!

Beautiful but dim
We purchased this as a ceiling mounted chandelier for our front hall, and it's beautiful, a perfect combination of classical elegance and modern design. The light has drawn appreciation from people entering the house already. Our complaint is that the 100W bulb (max rating) is quite dim, and does not sufficiently light the space. We have been using a 150W halogen with no problems (so far)...

Ultra Chic and Practical
I absolutely love this piece - works in any situation and you can see it on ecomanta.com They have a chandelier version that is fantastic as well. Easy to change the bulbs and actually gives off great light which most chandeliers do not.

Wow is about the best description I can give for this product. It is very sophisticated and gives off an even glow, no spotty dots on the ceiling. A perfect solution for a surface mount ceiling fixture.
Installation was a bit difficult considering the amount of assembly but well worth it.

I love my new light fixture.
I am really happy with the Caboche Ceiling Light. It's really pretty and soothing to look at. After 3 years of staring at a bare bulb in my ceiling, waiting to find the perfect fixture for the room, I feel I scored. My daughter wants one for her room too.

Great accent for the matching chandelier

This beautiful fixture makes me smile every time I look at it.
The fixture was well described on the site. Free shipping was great and price was comparable. Receipt of the product was in a very timely manner and all parts were in the box with good instructions. It was all a breeze for something that is so unique and beautiful.
