Ciszak Dalmas is a young Madrid and Turin – based studio, co-founded in 2009 by industrial designers Alberto Gobbino Ciszak and Andrea Caruso Dalmas. After graduating from the Politecnico of Turin, they joined different design firms such as Inga Sempé in Paris, Artemide in Milan, Brh+ and Pininfarina in Turin. They completed the European Design Labs Master in 2007 in Madrid, taking part in design workshops directed by international designers and firms.
In the belief that changes are possible with relatively small design actions, in 2010 Ciszak Dalmas launched La Clinica a collection of handcrafted furniture produced by local artisans based in three different parts of the world: Madrid (Spain), Turin (Italy) and Sao Paulo (Brazil). La Clinica is based on the interaction between young designers and experienced artisans, which combines new ideas with centuries-old know-how. The result is three different collections made from the same design and produced differently according to the local traditions and material resources.

Jaime Hayón Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon was born in Madrid in 1974. As a teenager, he submerged himself in skateboard culture and graffiti art, the foundation of the detailed, bold-yet-whimsical imagery so imminent in his work today. After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica in 1997, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy, working closely with the legendary image-maker and agitator Oliverio Toscani. In a short time he was promoted from student to head of their Design Department, where he oversaw projects ranging from shop, restaurant and exhibition conception and design to graphics. Eight years later, Jaime broke out on his own, first with collections of designer toys, ceramics and furniture, followed by interior design and installation. His singular vision was first fully exposed in ‘Mediterranean Digital Baroque’ at London’s David Gill Gallery, an exciting mise en scène, largely executed in ceramic, followed by ‘Mon Cirque’, which traveled to Frankfurt, Barcelona, Paris and Kuala Lumpur. These collections put Jaime at the forefront a new wave of creators that blurred the lines between art, decoration and design and a renaissance in finely-crafted, intricate objects within the context of contemporary design culture.FAVN 7Clown lampFAVN 6Conversation Vase IIAOctium Jewelry Grid Vases for Gaia and Gino

Martí Guixé comes from the background of every good designer, with an academic curriculum to his credit and work done with famous firms. But as revolutionaries today are born within the institutions that trained them, he revolutionizes design by working on living matter, that can be transformed and decomposed, hybridizing such areas as anthropology, humour, gastronomy, typography, the human sciences, exact sciences, performance, design. He analyses situations, behaviour and gestures and proposes radically effective solutions with minimal ergonomics, liberated from the image of an idealized body where technocratic perspective tried to create the right form. As a visionary he transforms things with his eyes that observe them and invents the indispensable commodities of the twenty-first century. Martí Guixé’s world is made of compact, effective objects going from the eye to the hand to the mouth; reassuring and metaphysical, to dream with a world with eyes gazing into the sky or to placate anguish, suitable for the thirsty and the hedonist, for TV football fans or for imitators of Calvino’s rampant baron; and also when they are designed for the fishes that link us to the origins, when fishes talked and fulfilled men’s desires. Guixé has listened to the fishes, he is like Cantona, the football star turned actor who does a TV spot against racism: both know how to act in that terrible cross that starts diagonally and goes beyond the limits of the field.
