Porqueras, Lluís

Porqueras himself recognises that he began designing without really knowing what industrial design was all about. After doing some courses in architecture and renovating a few country houses, in 1956 he set up Stoa, the first Catalan design studio, which, amongst other things, brought out lights by Enric Franch. Together with Jaume Vaquero, he established Vapor in 1979. The company manufactured warm, simple lamps, going against the technological trendiness of the times. "I made very simple things", affirms Lluí­s. "Even though the manufacturing process involved 25 separate operations, the end result was simplicity itself; all I wanted to do was to pare away, to pare away and to pare away until I reached the pure essence of a simple, useful object!". Later on, Lluí­s Porqueras started succesfull collaboration with companies like Santa&Cole and Marset. This has lead to lamps that clearly wear his design signature, like the Funiculí­ collection (Marset), which is a perfect example of his symplistic design.
