JORGE HERRERA

At Jorge Herrera Studio, we love detail. Our work consists of a constant search for simple, focused design ideas because we consider design to be a tool for making complicated things easy to use. We believe in strongly differentiating our company from our competitors to further our success, although we never claim to be reinventing the wheel or tearing up the rulebook. We only explore those avenues which lead to intelligent and practical solutions which also trigger innovation. We invest in technical and innovative processes, with a clear commitment to continue to improve and learn. We love all things modern, pleasing proportions, aesthetics, elegance, products that arouse emotions, while we’re also influenced by tradition. Someone once said that simplicity is the highest form of sophistication. We’ve adopted this maxim and made it the cornerstone of our work.

JOSE ALBERTO GONZALEZ

He qualified as an Industrial Design Engineer in 2007 and later that year exhibited several of his personal projects at the Valencia Habitat Trade Fair at 'NUDE', a space for new designers. His first press appearances came in the light of this exhibition. Also in 2007 his works were selected for inclusion in 'Entrantes 07', an exhibition for young designers. His designs were again featured at the 2008 edition of ‘NUDE’, as well as in magazines such as AD, the New York publications ID and SURFACE and Proyecto Contract.

JOSEP RUÀ

Designer and interior designer Josep Ruà heads up his own eponymous multidisciplinary team, which designs and carries out residential, commercial and temporary architecture projects. The studio sees being innovative and forging its own identity as an everyday challenge. It always tries to envision new aesthetic languages, while taking a handcrafted approach, whenever possible. Its personalised, original, timeless projects realise the dreams of all its clients or enhance the image of its products. The studio aims to create unique spaces in our globalised world where everything seems transitory and throwaway.

JOSÉ A. GANDÍA BLASCO

José Antonio Gandía-Blasco Canales was born in Ontinyent, Valencia, in 1956. He studied Law at the University of Valencia, but never practised. Following this, he returned to the family business of blanket making. A strong artistic restlessness drove him to reconsider the business model and the focus of the organisation. In 1989 he contacted Valencian studio La Nave and transformed the company's image. Hence the current brand image was born, recognisable by the slender cat logo, and then came his first collection of designer rugs. Although initially his designs were received cautiously, currently his designs, both for textiles as well as for outdoor furniture, are some of the company's biggest successes. Being his own connoisseur eventually paid dividends.

JUAN ARES lab

Juan Ares's design studio — which is part of the 'slow design’ movement — was founded in 2012. Its furniture is produced under essentially qualitative parameters and in a restrained way. Juan Ares promotes the manufacture of its furniture in local workshops and by businesses deploying traditional craftsmanship. Yet it also takes an innovative, iconoclastic approach. A respect for the environment and a belief in recycling are central planks of the company’s philosophy. Its creations' unique aesthetic is rooted in a search for an interaction with the sea’s structure via design. Our souls belong to the sea.
