Lagranja

links:

The vision for lagranja was born on an island in the Pacific in the summer of 2001. Coming to life a year later in Barcelona, as the brainchild of the creative tandem made up by Gabriele Schiavon and Gerard Sanmartí. Marking the beginning of a creative path and an activity defined by the ability of a team to move freely and master the disciplines of design, architecture and ephimeral installation projects.

At Lagranja theory goes hand in hand with practice. We learn by doing, listening to both instinct and reason. The only style is the attitude and energy that emanates from a project: optimistic, full of vitality and concern for people. Design that is never self-referential or self-satisfied, whose objective is an idea of a project free from conceptual obstacles: eclectic and versatile, capable of moving between different disciplines and typologies.

Lagranja is integrated by a multidisciplinary team and is structured in 3 departments:

Interior Design, Product Design, and Ephemeral Design Projects.
