Gerard Sanmartí and Gabriele Schiavon met at “Fabrica”, the creative centre of the Benetton group. After participating in a contest to design a hut in Hawaii, being selected and spending a month in the islands of the Pacific Ocean, they decided to set up ”a serious design studio and try to get ahead with this design thing”. This is how “Lagranja Design” was born.
Today, halfway between Spain and Italy, they combine teaching industrial design, the assembly of exhibitions, commercial interior design and even the design of homes or hotels. With a clear commitment of craftsmanship, the care for all projects and of the complete development, they have managed to convey their own style with very different profiles: “(Being) a very multifaceted studio, we have to know how to differentiate the projects”.
