WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?
Most of my childhood was spent in a quaint
little town on the outskirts of Barcelona, a place
where the elegance of European design meets
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST BIG BREAK?
My debut was actually a few years ago at
Euroluce in Milan, but just this past December I
started making appearances in the United States
WHAT’S THE RUMOR MILL CHURNING OUT ABOUT
YOU THESE DAYS?
People like to say a lot of things about me. In
truth I’m a tailored lighting solution, allowing
architects, interior designers, and lighting
professionals to create light systems that can
be adapted to the characteristics of individual
spaces and requirements of each project.
WHERE WAS THE LAST PLACE THE PAPARAZZI
So far this week at Euroluce I’ve been under
siege. It’s seems like everyone is paparazzi now.
ASIDE FROM SUGAR, SPICE, AND EVERYTHING NICE,
WHAT ELSE ARE YOU MADE OF?
My canopies are made from lacquered steel and
the LED rods and light points are a lightweight yet
durable lacquered aluminum that also functions
as a heat sink.
IF YOU COULD GET ONE PLASTIC SURGERY
PROCEDURE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I wouldn’t—I take pride in the markedly sculptural
definition of my body.
WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR IDOLS AND INFLUENCERS?
The classic HALLEY outdoor arc lamp, also designed
by Jordi Vilardell and Meritxell Vidal, is definitely one
of the forerunners to my career. This was the first
collaboration of the duo and is still a success today.
WHAT’S YOUR BIGGEST TURN-ON?
I like accent lighting with my linear compositions,
but I also love to illuminate central themes of
interior decoration. Install me over a dining table,
kitchen workspace, or service areas such as a
bar counters and reception areas to create a
Uniformity. By playing with the repetition of light
points, overlapping patterns, and varying heights,
my more complex compositions can evolve.
WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO WORK WITH NEXT?
It’s hard to say but I love working with architects
and lighting designers. They just seem to get me.
WHAT’S THE WORST PART ABOUT FAME?
What do you mean? Being famous is awesome.
