The architecture is not the aim here: we create places where things happen, where you can enjoy being surrounded by the atmosphere, the sounds and the warm lighting. In conclusion, a place where you can be happy in the easiest and more traditional way: around the table.

We have selected our materials to create the impression of being in a pharmacy that is at once “natural, intimate, professional and accessible”. The most distinctive finishing touch is the design of a corporate herringbone pattern which with we have manufactured MDF panels overlayed on natural wood to completely cover the walls and furniture.
Would it not be just right to recycle the typical stand, generally an open and strictly corporate showroom, into a traditional but sophisticated Irish Pub acclimatized to the local warmth and colour, while season it all up with the look & feel of the materials, patterns and trends of the greatest actuality when it comes to interior design?
Conceived as an art gallery, the office has ivory walls that make an ideal setting for Santomà’s furniture. “It’s like an exhibition space,” he says. “The pieces really pop against the white backdrop.” Breaking the geometry of the space is a 2-m-tall hemispheric meeting room – or “cupola”, as the designer calls it – clad in 3-mm-thick MDF, transparent panels, mirrors and palm fronds, any of which can be detached and shifted to another position.
The use of classic materials, basic in their most natural state, has given us that touch of warmth and authenticity, but by means of a twist in its use and application, we have managed to give the space a modern air. The layered construction of different materials has led to warm textures contrasting with flat and geometric patterns.
The walnut wood, the marquina black marble and the metallic elements result in furniture that stands out for the richness of its details. The flexible exhibition system used in the walls allows to display all types of garments and accessories. The sculptural counter plays with the intersection of marble volumes and a side glass display case for small products.
The space is efficiently organized around a large table oriented to the views, which is the central axis and separates the storage-library area from the exhibition of products. The available space is maximized to meet our daily needs in a flexible way, whether for individual work, teamwork or meetings.

At the entrance, a backlit polycarbonate wall contrasts sharply with the granite facade, generating a rift between exterior and interior and also providing guidance for the customer.
