In the 70s, I started my studies in Technical Architecture without much enthusiasm.
In the past everything was black and white, and I combined my studies with a draftsman job in a small firm in Barcelona (Travessera de Dalt). Still I was seeing out of the corner of my eye the emerging artistic movements of those times.

One day, a little colourful paper representing the inner design of a house fell into my hands, and from that moment I knew that was what I wanted to do. I wanted to be an interior designer.

I started self-teaching in on the side, doing some correspondence courses, without my family noticing, and under a certain effort, both economical and personal.

After that the Hippie movement arrived and my periodic trips to Ibiza helped me to discover the rebel spirit which later on influenced my projects.

In the end, I went to the school of “Artes Aplicadas de Diseño” (I still don’t actually know what it means), where I took a few courses until I joined the “National Designers School Organization”.

At the same time, I was interested in the pioneer architecture movements of Modernism, not only in my country – GATPAC – but also in the rest of Europe – BAHAUS – where the minimalist and rationalist influence is imprinted in my projects.

My passion to discover the trends of the moment would bring me to Milan, a city where art fluctuates in all its purest manifestations. Today is still one of my biggest references when I need to find inspiration, combined with my two other biggest passions, the piano and painting.
