ALVARO CATALAN DE OCON, l’impatto sociale del design
L’incontro con il designer spagnolo mira a conoscerne la giovane storia e le peculiarità di un approccio progettuale che spesso si confronta con temi sociali. In particolare il progetto Petlamp di cui l’autore ci racconterà dettagli e obiettivi.

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.
In 2004 he starts up his own studio in Barcelona where he designs LA FLACA lamp, winner of the DESIGN PLUS AWARD (Frankfurt), and finalist to the DELTA Awards in Barcelona. In 2009 he moves his studio to Madrid where he also teaches at the Instituto Europeo di Design.
During 2011 and 2012 he conceived and developed the PET Lamp Project which –since its presentation at Rosanna Orlandi in 2013– has been a growing success that has enable him to create the PET Lamp Studio Society so that the project can reach even further. This Project is backed up by several prizes and nominations: nomination for the London Design Museum as best product of the year, CODESPA for best PYME (SME), the AD prize for Best Emerging Design Studio, nomination for the Delta Award 2014, the 4th Ibero American Biennieal of Design (BID14) Design for Development Award and nomination for the German Design Award 2015.
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.
Nowadays he combines his work with different companies with the self-production of some of his designs such as HOME/OFFICE, PET LAMP, RAYUELA, CORNUCOPIA, CANDIL and the Copper version of LA FLACA.
