Recognized as the rising stars of design by Elle Decoration and Architectural Digest Spain, Masquespacio designers are the thinkers behind Essential Home’s new furniture collection that will be launched next month. Today, Inspirations Blog will talk about this amazing partnership between the Spanish interior design firm and the mid-century Portuguese brand.
Christophe and Ana took us through an inspiring journey of their work, and, as a bonus, the young talents unveiled some exclusive details of their vision for their new collection for the mid-century modern brand.
The renowned interior design firm has years of experience in the field and already has a unique portfolio with dazzling design projects. In an exlusive interview, the design duo explained their creative process.
“Our creative process always begins with knowing the client and their needs. From there I start to develop a concept. The concept can vary a lot and depends a lot on the type of project we are working on. Thus, creating a concept for a hamburger chain in which a commercial image is sought is not the same as a boutique hotel in which a much more unique project can be developed. Once the concept is determined, I begin to create the project. I do everything in 3D and I go through many sources of inspiration: fashion, cinema, design, and art, among others. My clients are always part of my inspiration because I design for them. Also traveling is another great source that I use…. In short, all the details that surround me can end up being part of a design. Regarding the 3D processes, I do tests and tests and tests until I reach a result that I can say I am satisfied, without looking at the clock and the hours invested. The main thing is the final result!”
The relationship with the clients is one of the most important parts, because they are a huge part of the creative process. “For us, it is of major importance to have a good connection with our clients as this is the beginning of a successful project. When we receive a request from a client the first thing we evaluate is if we are connecting with them and if the concept they want to develop matches our requirements. Without an open relationship and a client in search of something new, it would be impossible for us to create a unique project design.”
Every time Masquespacio announces a fresh collection or design project we wait with bated breath to get a glimpse of each beautiful, artisan-crafted piece and décor.
Designed with mid-century modern with an eclectic touch in mind, the collection includes everything you’ve come to expect from Masquespacio design duo. “We create emotional projects, full of details and textures that surprise users, whether in an interior design project or in a product design. We also speak many times of our universe in which we mix colors, materials, and textures in search of innovative proposals for each client.”
For the design experts, Essential Home is “first of all, of course, a mid-century inspired design. Secondly, a high-quality production that gets away from the timeless neutral creations we have seen a lot through Scandinavian brands, bringing an aesthetic that seeks more to present emotions and unique forms.”
We were attracted by the brand already a few years ago. We felt that they were more into creating a unique aesthetic with a highly emotionally factor traduced in furniture collections full of surprising details. When Essential Home contacted us, since the beginning we were excited to develop some designs for them. For us, it is important that we feel connected with the brand that wants us to develop some items for them and this was the case with Essential Home. Thus, we offered a wide range of products from chairs and tables to barstools and even some lighting features. All the designs are divided into 2/3 main collections with each a different aesthetic and concept.
The final result of the partnership between Masquespacio and mid-century brand Essential Home is a unique collection“inspired by different actors and actresses from the past and the present and connect together or just can stand out separately. From the romantic movie ”An Affair to Remember”, to the burlesque world from Zsa Zsa Gabor to Charlie’s Angels.”
Stay tuned and discover everything about the fresh new collection that will be launched ON THE 18TH OF MAY!
