EDDADESIGN is a design studio founded by Jordi Milá in 1995. Its orientation in the initial stage was toward product design and development but today its positioning is shifted to the entire design by experience, the best measures to establish a profound tie between consumers and the brand. Totally oriented toward consumers, the service of the studio is differentiated with its unique methods, ability, and technology. Their methodology understands the product gestation process in four stages: identification of potential needs, architecture of value, design and staging. The staff includes professionals specialized in a variety of activities, such as anthropologists; specialists in marketing strategy; product, software, communication, and model designers; and engineers. Winner of two awards from the Red Dot Design Award in Germany collaborates.

Ever since Javier Mariscal (b. Valencia, 1950) clutched a pencil to make a living, his career has been characterised by its creative incontinence; by this he means the need to express himself through different fields, artistic or otherwise. Furniture design, painting, sculpture, illustration, interior design, graphic design, landscaping, gardening, horticulture... all are part of his profession and his life. Mariscal founded his studio in 1989 and expresses himself through a personal language that is complex in its intention and simple in its manifestation, innocent and provocative at the same time, allowing him to innovate, take risks and communicate, teasing the eyes of his audience as a bond develops between those who look at his work.

Estudio Nómada, José Antonio Vázquez Martín (Architech) and Enrique de Santiago (Interior Designer), results of the sum of different personal trajectories which converged in 2008 in Santiago de Compostela (Spain). Currently the studio is oriented towards architectonical projects with a special emphasis to the details and a strong link to interior design, seeking to produce a unified concept. This aspiration to get involved in all facets of the pro-cess pretends to differentiate the studio and exploring new disciplines outside the established profession, such as furniture and industrial design, graphic design, events planning, etc. but always with the same rigorous working process as on architectural projects.
