Roca Barcelona Gallery inaugurates its new exhibition “TURA. Volume and light. Void and shadow.” A tribute to the great Catalan architects of the 20th century such as Sert, Bonet or Coderch. The exhibition offers a journey through the concept, design process, inspiration and origins of this new collection.
Andreu is the designer of the collection. He creates timeless objects with materials and sustainability as protagonists. Following his childhood dream of being an inventor, Andreu has his own design studio founded in 2006 and has turned it into one of the most versatile firms in Spain.
The constant exploration of materials, old school techniques and contemporary processes characterizes the projects of the studio that gives life to furniture, lighting, creative direction, interior design and much more.
As an example, Roca Barcelona Gallery shows a selection of objects that bear Andreu's signature and a diagram of all the materials and techniques that have been used in each of them.
Roca and the creative process
Coderch quotes Louis Sullivan, one of the most influential architects of the late 19th century: “Behind every building you see is a man you don't see.”
The exhibition, with clear overtones of the Catalan architect and the Mediterranean architecture of the 20th century, also dedicates an important part to the human factor and the creative/productive process in which the entire Roca and Andreu Carulla team have taken part.
With images, real sketches and augmented reality glasses, the different areas of the exhibition explain in detail each of the steps, involvement, meetings, prototypes and tests that have been necessary to bring this collection to life.
We invite you to go to Roca Barcelona Gallery (C/Joan Güell 211-213) and enjoy this journey through design, from the concept to the inspiration.
