Inspired in Barcelona: In & Out
Wednesday 12 Apr 2017
Officially opened to the public, the “Inspired in Barcelona: In & Out” exhibition scheduled to be at Palazzo Isimbardi until the 9th 2017, fully immerses you in the lifestyle of this Mediterranean city. In time, Barcelona has grown into a cradle of creativity, where design and architecture inspire the social behaviours and constitute tangible values for its inhabitants and for a multitude of tourists that go there every year.
From the works of Enric Miralles, to the mark Jean Nouvel has left on the city, the Catalan capital indeed houses some of the finest examples of contemporary architecture, enriched by a planning of the open-air spaces that stimulates constant use by the community. The design is evident even on the streets and continues inside homes, where the furnishing product mixes Mediterranean creativity with the most innovative international trends.
Design therefore pervades and is deep-rooted in the Catalonia area on various levels. It is this complexity that Catalonia Trade & Investment and BCD – Barcelona Centro de Diseño, the exhibition’s organisers, have sought to interpret in the outfitting design by Emiliana Design Studio, which feature the recreation of the most characteristic spheres of the city’s creativity. The patio and portico of Palazzo Isimbardi, the prestigious venue chosen to host the event, perfectly present the different forms that make Barcelona a metropolitan hub in constant evolution and renowned all over the world.
“Inspired in Barcelona: In & Out” is conceived to bring out the potential that Barcelona can express in design, with a selection of 90 products made by the best brands and designers. Eugeni Quitllet, Jaime Hayon, Patricia Urquiola, Miguel Milà, Lievore Altherr Molina and Lagranja Design, together with Santa & Cole, Kettal, Nanimarquina, are just some of the main players in this unique voyage that takes the exhibition’s visitors through the excellence of Catalan design.
