Tomás Alonso was born in Vigo in 1974. At the age of nineteen, he left his home town to move to the USA in order to study industrial design. At the same time, he also worked for an Italian car tyre design company. He lived in Italy and Australia before settling in London, where he did a Masters at the Royal College of Art, graduating in 2006. He currently forms part of the Okay studio, which consists of a team of six designers of six different nationalities. The range and quality of his work has meant that Okay studio has received ample coverage in specialist design magazines such as Wallpaper or World of Interiors. Tomás Alonso, as well as producing his own personal work, also works for the architect Nigel Coates, who specialises in designer furniture produced in Italy. His designs are humanist in nature, and involve simple objects. His work is characterised by its functionality, as well as the romanticism of his pieces. From his recent work we can highlight the Mr. Light lamps, and Chair No. 7 (Nube), for which he was awarded first prize at the Italian design competition Promosedia.
Trends Objects was created in 2011 through a desire to offer solutions and advice in design, with design management being a fundamental tool. Carles Margarit is at its helm; he is a product-interior designer and a qualified Design Manager. His intention for the studio is to provide interior design advice, consultancy in design management, furniture design and the finalising of the brand image.
