Discovering the new Geodies collection. Enjoying a coffee, two pastries, and a juice while chatting with journalists from prestigious design magazines is the perfect way to start the day, especially when waiting for the busiest week of the year: Milan Design Week! A breakfast event was held at the Foro Bonaparte showroom to preview the new Geodies collection designed by Patricia Urquiola for Budri. The collection will be presented at the upcoming international kermesse in Milan in April. Geodies is a collection that showcases the evolution of stone, from its natural state to its processed form. The use of geodes and quartz in the collection is a result of careful observation. It is remarkable how geometrically perfect shapes can emerge from rocks or mineral boulders that are deformed and porous at their base. These shapes, such as parallelepipeds and cusps, are highly resistant to chemical degradation, weathering, and water erosion, allowing them to remain intact for millennia. The irregular rock form of geodes makes drilling impossible. This led us to explore new design concepts where marbles and quartz coexist harmoniously – Alessandra Malagoli Budri, Art Director
