Revealed at Milan Design Week 2017, Patricia Urquiola and Federico Pepe’s Miscredenza is a collection of little architectural furniture with unusual geometries made with coloured glass. Miscredenza consists of one sideboard and two bookcases where customers can choose the colours and the patterns to be applied to the glass.
Miscredenza is an addition to Editions Milano‘s design collection where together with last year’s Credenza, designed by the same duo, are the protagonists.
The Italian word, credenza, meaning both a cabinet and one’s belief is the starting point of the project. “The whole project is the matter of belief and unbelief” explains Patricia Urquiola. “We really played with this concept, as we’re on two completely different sides; Federico is the belief, I am the unbelief.”
Credenza is the result of believing in an ancient technique today is almost abandoned, the stained glass. Miscredenza on the other hand is born as a bi-dimensional drawing of a tri-dimensional work.
