GDIS and GEDI professor
Martín Azúa is a Basque designer that works in Barcelona since 1994. He graduated in Fine Arts by the Universitat de Barcelona. He combines his professional career as a product and space designer for important companies with a more speculative work. He belongs in a category of designers that consider experimental methods as a fundamental part of the design process. Since 2007, his project “Basic House” is part of the permanent exhibition of New York’s MOMA. He also has pieces in the collection of Museu del Disseny and in different public and private collections.
He is personally interested in the incorporation of natural processes in the daily-life and the usage of handmade resources to protect cultural and technological diversity.
