BUIT is the new outdoor furniture collection designed by Mayice Studio for the GANDIABLASCO brand. Mayice is a multi-disciplinary studio with its headquarters in Madrid, founded in 2014 by architects Marta Alonso Yebra and Imanol Calderón Elósegui. Over recent years the duo have undertaken interior design projects and the design for furniture and objects that have been exhibited during ‘design weeks’ in cities such as New York, Berlin and Milan. For these creations they prefer to work with local craftsmen and women after detailed research into materials and processes.
So, just like GANDIABLASCO the Mayice studio is interested in using quality materials and works with extreme attention to detail in their treatment, combination and finish. Both firms share a great respect for tradition combined with using innovative materials within a natural dialogue that flows between past and present.
BUIT features aluminium, the material of choice for GANDIABLASCO, which after researching its resistance and ergonomics, is used to create pieces that form a modular collection including a simple armchair and a pouffe made from an aluminium mesh, woven with a special padded textile designed for outdoor use – Febrik Kvadrat. The modular nature and lightness of the collection allows for the creation of sofas, outdoor daybeds and other larger configurations. BUIT is a collaboration that brings together the sensibilities and interests of both the brand and the designers of this sculptural collection via a marked artistic quality.
After more than 20 years dedicated to the world of fashion – working as a consultant for brands like Giorgio Armani and Donna Karan in 2002 – Rossana Orlandi decided to translate her passion for design to the world of private collectors and opened her own gallery. This innovative and cross disciplinary space located within an old factory that manufactured neckties in the Corso Magenta neighbourhood now showcases a rigorous selection of art works and pieces by emerging designers reflecting the most innovative currents from the five continents.
With this collection Mayice and GANDIABLASCO synergise their energy and imagination in order to come up with an innovative and elegant solution to occupying space while enjoying the outdoors all year-round.
