Our story goes back to 1998, when Lagranja Design founders, Gabriele Schiavon y Gerard Sanmartí, met at Fabrica, the communication research center at Treviso (Italy). That’s when the partnership, fun and a few heated disagreements, started… and we haven’t stopped working together yet.
In 2002, we founded Lagranja Design, a multidisciplinary design studio where we work on all kind of projects only two main conditions: having fun and never repeating ourselves. The name (Spanish for “the farm”) comes from the street where our first studio was. We loved the idea of likening our work to a farm, where everything is kind of wild and unpredictable.
At the studio, we design product and interiors, although we are open to all kind of projects. The spaces we create always have some storytelling, we want their users to look for the stories behind the objects. We create bespoke, unique pieces and specific furniture for most of our projects. We want to surprise, not to overwhelm.
In 2010 this adventure took us to Hong Kong, and later to Singapore. Just a year later, we opened an office in Istanbul, partnering with our friend Tunga Taysal.
As if that wasn’t enough to keep us busy, two years ago we launched Lagranja Collection, our self-edited furniture catalogue.
After more than 15 years, and a bigger and more global team, we are just as wild as we were when we meet. And we still want to have fun!
