The group’s latest collections in collaboration with renowned international designers explore the link between craftsmanship, sustainability and design from its Mediterranean roots.
At a stand designed exclusively by Kengo Kuma, Gandia Blasco Group presented the new GANDIABLASCO, GAN and DIABLA collections at the 60th Salone del Mobile. The Valencian family company, specialized through its three brands in the design and manufacture of furniture and outdoor spaces and the creation and handmade production of rugs, has once again attended this unmissable global event for the universe of design and interior design.
Ambiences gently evoked by hand-made lattices with Valencian wooden blinds welcomed the different product categories of the Gandia Blasco Group, evoking the layout of the traditional sudare screens. All this, in a clear manifestation of the philosophy of the acclaimed Japanese architect, characterized by the revision of the constructive legacy of his native country to bring it up to date, always prioritizing local materials and a sense of harmony with the natural environment.
In this intimate refuge of wood and the play of light and shadow, Kengo Kuma himself and designers such as Todd Bracher, Luca Nichetto, Sebastian Herkner, Francesco Meda, David Quincoces, Álvaro Catalán de Ocón, Charlotte Lancelot, Clara von Zweigbergk, Teresa Sapey, OiKo Design Office, Borja García, Mut Design, Democràcia Estudio, José A. Gandía-Blasco and Alejandra Gandía-Blasco have uncovered their new creations for GANDIABLASCO, GAN and DIABLA.
The Kengo Kuma & Associates stand for Gandia Blasco Group will be reused in the next fairs of the sector in which the company is present, such as Feria Hábitat Valencia or Imm Cologne and, finally, it will be installed in one of the warehouses that constitute the headquarters of the group in Ontinyent (Valencia) since its foundation in 1941.
GANDIABLASCO, GAN and DIABLA, which over the years have managed to build a strong and recognizable identity in their respective areas by committing to design at all levels, are grateful for the support of visitors, clients and collaborators and are proud to have actively participated at the Salone del Mobile.Milano 2022 reflection on the crucial incorporation of sustainability and environmental awareness in furniture production and the urgent ecological transition in the world of design.
