Jaime Tresserra Clapés, the Tresserra Collection's exclusive designer, was born in Barcelona in 1943. He was brought up in a family of actors and fashion designers who taught him that special sensitivity so recognisable in his work. In 1987 he made a profound career change with the founding of J.Tresserra Design, which would later go on to be called Tresserra Collection SL, and presented his first homewares collection at the Valencia International Furniture Trade Fair in which he was awarded the prize for Best Modern Furniture Design for his "Secreter Carpett." Jaime Tresserra has designed exclusive pieces for numerous private clients and has his own showrooms in Barcelona
. He is currently developing a collection based on a new concept of sculpture-furniture: Tresserra Gallery.
