Raised and educated by the sea, Carlos Guijarro is a rational and sensitive designer influenced by the Mediterranean style of life. After spending his childhood surrounded by surf, nature and arts, he studied Industrial Design at ELISAVA Barcelona. Once finished in 2011, he lived and worked for different design studios and companyes located in England, Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, Indonesia and Spain. Back in his hometown Alicante, he founded his own studio early 2016. Currently he is based in Milan, Italy, working for international brands and enrolled in a Master in Interior & Living Design at Domus Academy.
His style reflects all his experiences combining a clear influence of nordic design with the vivacity of southern Europe. Rationalism and functionality are the base of his projects, where seductive forms and attractive materials are the key points of each of his designs. The ability to combine his traveler personality with his working experience has given him a broad knowledge of the market, styles and trends, providing a bold vision to channel his ideas into exciting pieces with a special aesthetic and big attention to details.
