Bio

Madrid-based practice founded by Spanish designer Jorge Penadés. Established in 2015,
the office cultivates a dissident approach to the contemporary notion of design which often manifest in new materials, objects, installations, one-off commissions, exhibitions or architectural experiences.

His work has been legitimized by different museums, galleries and design venues including Vitra Design Museum (GER), National Museum Design (SE), Museo Nacional de las Artes Decorativas (SP), Museu del Disseny (SP), Villa Noailles (FR), The Aram Gallery (UK) or Rossana Orlandi (IT).

Jorge has been the recipient of the ICON Volkswagen Design Award 2018 or the AD Nuevo Talento Campari 2017 among others. He regularly teaches at Instituto Europeo di Design (IED) in Madrid and run workshops at international institutions like the Domaine de Boisbuchet.

He is represented by Rossana Orlandi (IT), Galería Arbequina (MX) and Machado-Muñoz (SP) where in January 2018 opened Poli-Piel: his first solo show.

His work is included in the permanent collection of the Vitra Design Museum.
