After meeting at Servei Estació, Barcelona’s famous company offering multiple products and services, where they pooled ideas and experiences gained in the studios where they’d previously worked, designers Ruth Pérez and Xavier Flores decided to join forces and set up their company, COMPEIXALAIGUA DESIGNSTUDIO, which allowed them to give shape to the designs they like to create.
Cuarto Interior is situated in Chueca, Madrid, a cosmopolitan yet very typical area of the city, located at its centre. Cuarto Interior’s members are José Manuel Fernández and Germán Álvarez, two young architects who, in 2003, joined forces to set up this interior design studio, which today has eight employees. Germán is its creative director, and is in charge of the initial development and conceptualisation of projects. José Manuel takes care of the technical side of the company and its business development.
CrousCalogero is a Barcelona-based product design studio co-founded by Francesc Crous and Alessandro Calogero, industrial design graduates of Barcelona’s art and design school Eina, Escola de Disseny i Art and Politecnico di Milano respectively. Both designers were collaborating individually with renowned international design studios until their career paths crossed one day at bathroom company Roca’s Roca Innovation Lab in 2006. And, in 2009, they co-founded their own Barcelona-based studio.
The studio’s founder, Borja García, was born in 1980 in Valencia, where he studied technical engineering in industrial design at the city’s University of Cardenal Herrera-CEU, and collaborated with different local design studios. In 2001, he moved to Milan, where he did an architecture degree, then completed his training at the studio, Design Continuum Italia, later establishing himself as an independent architect.
