CAST. El viernes 14 de Junio abrimos nuestro estudio al público por primera vez como parte de la Barcelona Design Week en colaboración con Cervezas Alhambra. Tuvimos el placer de hablar con otros diseñadores, entusiastas de la sostenibilidad, estudiantes y vecinos curiosos. En el estudio presentamos nuestros proyectos más recientes, algunos de los cuales no se habían mostrado al público anteriormente. Por ejemplo, enseñamos Circ, una nueva colección de alfombras modulares hechas de residuos de preconsumo diseñada para Barcelona Rugs. También presentamos la familia Garçon por primera vez en Barcelona, una colección de lámparas de diseño atemporal diseñada para Carpyen, que pone un gran énfasis en la estética y la ergonomía. También presentamos algunos de nuestros proyectos de autoproducción, como la estantería modular Río y las piezas de la familia NOEM y algunos productos anteriores como los colgadores Treviso, diseñados para Made Design, que no generan en residuos en su producción.

Si no tuviste la oportunidad de asistir a nuestra fiesta de inauguración, no dudes en visitarnos. Si pasas por nuestro estudio durante la próxima semana, aún podrás ver los productos mencionados anteriormente. Queremos agradecer especialmente a Carpyen, Barcelona Rugs y Cerveza Alhambra por hacer posible una apertura de la cual estamos tan orgullosos.

ENG. Last June 14th we opened our studio to the public for the first time as part of the Barcelona Design Week in collaboration with Cervezas Alhambra. We had the pleasure of getting to talk to fellow designers, sustainability enthusiasts, students and curious neighbors. In the studio we featured our most recent projects, some of which had not been shown to the public prior to this. For example, we presented Circ, a new collection of modular carpets made from pre-consumer waste designed for Barcelona Rugs. We also showed Garçon for the first time in Barcelona, a lamp collection of atemporal design designed for Carpyen, that has a strong focus on both aesthetics and ergonomics. We also presented some of our self-production projects, such as Rio, a modular bookshelf, and the piece from our NOEM furniture range as well as older projects such as the Treviso hangers, designed for Made Design, which create no production waste.

If you didn’t have a chance to come by for our opening party, feel free to come by and visit us. If you walk past our studio during the upcoming week you will still be able to see the products mentioned above. We would like to give a special thanks to Carpyen, Barcelona Rugs and Cerveza Alhambra for making such a successful opening possible.

Introducing the Noem range in the 2018 London Design Fair.

Carl, Rachel, Jane and Chico, the new members of the Noem family, have been presented in the London Design Fair last week! Showed in a space shared with other colleagues from our city under the motto Inspired in Barcelona: Design Editions organized by the Barcelona Design Center, this fair allowed us to reveal these news products for the first time!  Here is a summary of the most important things we have lived these days accompanied by a virtual tour of the exhibition. Enjoy!

 An unexpected sustainable approach.

If you follow us in social networks, maybe you already know that the names of the Noem pieces are borrowed from great personalities who fought for the environment and social causes that inspired us. To choose these names has involved some discussions about which figures we wanted to highlight and has let us to learn about very inspiring people. It allows us to explain the Noem Family Ethics and its commitment with sustainable design. Noem is a responsible creation that surprised in the LDF2018 and wasn’t probably expected there. Indeed, we were one of the rare exhibitors working under those criterias!

 An upholstery armchair inviting you to touch!

Another discovery and revelation, the upholstered armchair. The colors, the shape, the texture made it the piece with more success of the range. The quality of the fabric invited people to touch it, to try it and to sit on it. Carl, our Armchair, has created convivial moments and warm exchanges about the range. Our product is proud to share these values and create moments like these! Seeing the success we will push ourselves to develop more upholstered pieces as soon as possible!

An accurate design from the global shape to the smallest joint.

Last but not least, the details of the design. The material finishes, the visible steel structure, the choice of colors and the geometric and playful shapes were particularly appreciated. A special mention for the joints of our stool, Chico, which was selected as one of the most beautiful joints of the exhibition by one of our visitors! 

A refreshing and enriching atmosphere.

To conclude, an experience full of emotion and discovery, a lively and welcoming London neighborhood, some great curry in sauce, some pizzas and beers, modern and talented exhibition's neighbors, curious and interested visitors ... In short, we ended this experience tired but at the same time full of energy, inspirations and interesting feedbacks for the future of the Noem range! Maybe thanks to you, one day, we will see the upholstery declined to other models or some joints will become more visible... Stay tuned! 

We hope you liked this summary; stay tuned because Carl, Rachel, Jane and Chico will be in our online store soon!

New web 2017

We started the process to plan our new web in the beginning of 2016. We have been dedicating a lot of time and effort to think which was the best way to present the studio, showing the principles that rule our approach to product design: rich, diverse, ambitious, but also realistic. You probably know that we strongly believe that design is the best tool to improve the environmental and social impact of products, but we also think that it makes them better in every single aspect, from functionality to differentiation or aesthetics.

We called the result "the Nutcreatives' manifesto" and you can read it in the first section of the web: "Studio". We hope it inspire you!

For us this web has to be the platform to become a company with international impact. Until now we have been doing small attends with international clients -in close european countries mostly- but our activity is still 99% based in Catalonia. This webpage and other tools that we are still developing must push us to make real a process that will finish at the end of 2018, with ideally a more consolidated international presence.
