drew a crowd of designers and architects last week to its NYC showroom. The headliner was

, who introduced her new Tierras collection produced by
and available through Stone Source.
editor in chief Cindy Allen was on hand to interview Urquiola, honing in on the line’s roots in Italian tradition, juxtaposed with technological innovation.
