W Retreat and Spa designed by Patricia Urquiola

W Retreat & Spa on Vieques Island, Puerto Rico, vies with one of the most spectacular natural beauty spots in the Caribbean. Patricia Urquiola is an architect and furniture designer who draws much inspiration from her treasured memories of growing up in Spain and leisurely family vacations. She brings this sensibility to her design for W Retreat & Spa, using some of her own furniture collections for Moroso to capture the essence of the island’s spell.

Moroso's products used for the realization of this project are Field, Tropicalia, and Fjord.

One of Urquiola's most unique pieces, is the oversized Vieques bathtub, designed for Agape. It’s a contemporary restyling of the old-fashioned bath tub, for a decidedly unconventional environment.
