The history of this industrial design studio began when its three founders, Laura Blasco, Juanmi Juárez and Alex Estévez, met in Barcelona after years of training in different design schools in Spain, England and Italy. Together, they set off a creative journey united by their common aim of finding the extraordinary in the ordinary.

They strive to find excellence and achieve balance in each one of the projects where they have participated. They collaborate with renowned international brands such as Moroso, Kettal, BD Barcelona Design, Kvadrat, Fermob and RS, among others. Their work has traveled the world in exhibitions, trade fairs and conferences. Recently, "Elle decoration Spain" has awarded the studio as best young Spanish designers of 2016, and "El País" has included them in the ranking "20 names of Spanish design you should know".
