Spanish designer Guillermo Santomá (b.1984) lives and works in Barcelona. After completing his MA in Design from Elisava Barcelona, Santomà attracted attention to his work after his total transformation of Casa Horta – an architectonic, artistic intervention in a traditional horta-house from the beginning of the 20th century. Santomà places himself somewhere in-between architecture and design and creates complete environments for his work to act in.
With the artistic formula 'to create is to destroy', Santomà works to deconstruct the fixed images of design. Never pre-sketching his work, Santomà's work is a constant process of deformation and creation. For his exhibition Mirage at Etage Projects he exhibits beautifully shaped glass chairs in a meandering landscape of sand. Contrasts meet and dialogues happens in the meeting between various materials and functions; sand, glass, metal and neon.
Previous exhibitions include Wer Haus and Palais de Tokyo.
