Masquespacio is an award-winning creative consultancy created in 2010 by Ana Milena Hernández Palacios and Christophe Penasse. Combining the 2 disciplines of their founders, interior design and marketing, the Spanish design agency creates custom-made branding and interior projects through a unique approach that results in fresh and innovative concepts.
Ana Milena Hernández Palacios, an interior designer, and Christophe Penasse, a marketer, decided to combine their different industry backgrounds to make an agency where branding, product design, art direction and space design would come as one.
Ana Milena Hernández is the founder and creative director of Masquespacio. She is passionate about design and everything that has to do with it. For her design is much more than employment, it’s a lifestyle. A lifestyle that makes her take care of every detail in her projects, looking for the optimal solution for every client, without losing the focus on distinguishing their brands from their competitors with fresh and innovative concepts.
Christophe Penasse is co-founder and actually marketing director of Masquespacio. As a marketeer he loves creating new concepts for his clients, giving greater importance to the design and identity of each brand. He likes everything to do with marketing, besides being passionate about design. At present, in addition to his job in Masquespacio, he is working as a chief editor for Blog del Diseño, a media specialized in design founded by Masquespacio.
The design duo has been making waves in the design world. Since its creation in 2010, they have been conquering clients hears, international recognition by some of the most distinguished design magazines, and awards like “Massimo Dutti New Values” by Architectural Digest Spain, “Wave of the Future” by Hospitality Design USA, “Young Talented Awards” by Elle Decor.
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.
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, just like in the movies, called “Hollywood Glamour”: A unique mid-century modern collection inspired by three of the most popular movie styles in that era, from passionate love affairs to fun burlesque environments. The idea is to connect the past and the present by reviving the bright side of old Hollywood glam.
Our new collection is full of emotions, organic forms, and contrast of materials, revealing some new types of textures. Three sets of products will take you to your favorite movie set through excellence in design that is adaptable for every type of project, from the modern residential idea to the shabby chic restaurant design.
There is a significant move towards rounded shapes in interiors, particularly furniture like this cocooning chair. There are no hard edges and the round shapes are kinder and more welcoming.
