About me

"From spoon to the city" Massimo and Lella Vignelli dixit ......and I totally agree. I don’t understand setting boundaries between the different fields in design. Architecture, graphics, wayfinding, product or urban design, interiors…...everything is Design and everything points at the same direction, improve people’s life, make it easier, more beautiful and happier. Functionality, aesthetics and emotion are 3 of the components I try always to be present in my job. Commitment, collaborative spirit and humor, lots of sense of humor is my contribution to the teams I work with. My experience ranges from architecture, interior design, exhibitions, furniture, signage, sculpture and artistic interventions, to urban environments. Always seeking an artistic approach that highlights the character and identity of each project. That flexibility is the result of nine years involved within the team of Estudio Mariscal, a multidisciplinary office that works design into all it’s facets and whose spirit is: “First surprise, then fascinate and finally convince.” Sinking into cities, walking them and living them is one of my passions. Travelling around and writing about them, one of my interests. You can take a look to my ideas at Urban Living Lab (urbanlivinglab.net) an on-line platform that talks about territory, cities and its citizens. My nomadic way of life has bring me to Brisbane, Australia, where I have discovered what is Wayfinding design and the weird australian breakfast with Vegemite. Now I am back in Spain moving between Barcelona and Madrid.......next step, who knows?!

Architect & designer

Estudio Mariscal

Feb 2006 - Sep 2014
  • Barcelona, Spain
  • Full Time
  • As part of the team Mariscal my experience embraced the space from graphics to architecture, filling the gap between creativity and technology, with a strong knowledge of the process that leads you from the graphic concept and identity to the implementation in the space. I have specially worked on projects related with interiors or urban environments participating in all the scales of the process from the strategy to the details. That has given me a wide perspective and flexibility to move between different disciplines such as design of interiors, exhibitions, sculpture or artistic interventions, signage & environment design. As a result I understand design as a global practice where all the scales and disciplines are involved focusing on human experience.
