Alvaro Catalan de Ocon

Born in Madrid, his take on design is based on a highly sophisticated vision of what makes an object special. His designs are clean and elemental, but rich in experience and associations. The easy and relaxed look of his realizations is achieved through an intensive process of study and reduction.


After completing his business management studies, he begins his training in product design at the Instituto Europeo di Design (2000-01) in Milan and later graduates with honours from Central Saint Martins (2001-04) in London. His thesis project, the GLOW BRICK, is still manufactured and distributed by Suck – UK.


Nowadays he combines his work with different companies with the self-production of some of his designs such as RAYUELA, CORNUCOPIA, CANDIL and the Copper version of LA FLACA.  His designs can be found in renamed Galleries such as OA in Madrid, David Gill in London, Galleria Rossana Orlandi in Milan, SIM SUM – Madrid and GUGGENHEIM Museum- Bilbao.
