Behind each of Mermeladaestudio’s many projects is a story: “We love to have products with meaning, products with a rich language and smart details to discover once you watch and use them,” the trio explains. Juan Miguel Juárez, Laura Blasco, and Alex Estévez met in a Barcelona design studio, where Juárez and Blasco worked on the design team and Estévez interned. The three collaborated so well that they founded their own studio in 2009.

Relying primarily on wood, metal, and fabric, Mermeladaestudio starts its building process by searching for relevant details to incorporate into the product before creating models; only after this physical process do they refine their ideas on a computer. This hands-on approach lends itself well to the group’s gregarious, comfortable furniture and structures.

Often, it also creates a childlike simplicity, like the Nansa indoor swing, based on woven wicker baskets, a set of shelves inspired by houses, or the Welcome playhouse. They may take their name from a sticky-sweet source (mermelada translates to “jam” or “marmalade”), but their designs turn the saccharine into something cutting-edge.
