CAREER

 

Best Interior Designers: How did you get get involved in the interior design industry?

L.A STUDIO: L.A STUDIO was established 20 years ago and firstly was focused on antics. We then started having a taste for European and American furniture from the 20th Century.

Best Interior Designers: How would you describe your work style? Do you have any kind of signatures that help to identify your projects?

L.A STUDIO: During our long career we have kept certain tips that specify our style, generating our main autonomy and identity. The heterodoxy where both styles, period and different lines combine allow us to have a large range of searching which is very interesting for us. It is also important for us the use of colour and incorporate contemporary art pieces in the projects we develop, which are signatures that clearly mark the difference between interior design and high-end design.

 

Best Interior Designers: Be in love with our work is always the key to achieve better results. Are you in love with this job? What do you love most about being an interior designer?

L.A STUDIO: Love and passion are two important elements in our job that allow us to have a searching process that keeps growing at all times in everything that surrounds us. We extend this observance to the interior design field and also to all creative disciplines, that in most of the times, we use as inspiration.

Best Interior Designers: What is your philosophy on design and life?

L.A STUDIO: Our philosophy could be summarized as “being children of our times”. Reason why we are always following last trendy creative and artistic innovations that are happening to create our contemporary projects, where personality is a very important milestone.

 

INSPIRATION

Best Interior Designers: Keep up to date on all the trends is essential for anyone who wants to conquer this market. In what ways do you keep current with new trends?

L.A STUDIO: The passion that we have for our job makes us having an open mind and keeping an eye on everything that surrounds us, as in: fashion, cinema, theater, opera… and then get it involved in our projects. We combine this with the pieces that we browse during the trips we do around Europe, that makes us realize of other realities. Eventually nowadays we are all following social media which give us a global vision of trends designs.

Best Interior Designers: Keep up to date on all the trends is essential for anyone who wants to conquer this market. In what ways do you keep current with new trends?

L.A STUDIO: General speaking, our team is composed of young people, but we keep using paperwork as references and inspiration like AD SPAIN, The Worlds of Interiors, Cabana Magazine or Frame, among others. We complement this with digital magazines and current media as Instagram, that allows us having an endless knowledge

Best Interior Designers: All artists need some inspiration to work, and interior designers are artists too. So, what or who really inspires you?

L.A STUDIO: We have got multiple inspirations that go from different disciplines. Focusing on the interior design field, we could be between the historicism of Tony Duquette to the contemporary fabolous style of Kelly Wearstler. The art field is another world where we find many of our references. From Jason Rhoades, Mark Queen, Tracey EMin, to Douglas Gordon. Theater and fine arts are another milestone where we could point out creators such us Bob WIlson or Robert Lepage.

Best Interior Designers: If you had to pick one project around the world that you wish it was made by you, which one would it be?

L.A STUDIO: Bearing in mind how difficult would it be to choose just one work of all the the projects we have done during our long career, we would like to point out the wonderful job that Gio Ponti did in Venezuela in 1953, with the iconic Villa Planchart. The colour that has been used, creativity, the concept, the combination of multiple disciplines and creators and the exquisite art selection, make this work one of our aesthetic and conceptual pillars.

 

PROJECTS

Best Interior Designers: How important is a perfect chemistry between you and your clients to achieve the best results?

L.A STUDIO: The feeling and respect for our job is a must when we establish a link between the client and us. It is very important to listen to our client but never obey them. We understand that when a client hires an interior designer wants to get a better idea of their aesthetic and decorative knowledge. That step of trusting is what we requires from client and it is a must to be able to get a perfect balance for the project to get a link between L.A STUDIO’s signature and client’s personality.

Best Interior Designers: Choose the best pieces to compose a project can be the secret to getting the best overall result. Although it seems easy, this is a delicate task and needs full attention on time to execute. Do you have some tips for those who do not know well how to start a challenge like this?

L.A STUDIO: Usually people work with homogeneity as lifestyle starting point, creating a “matchy matchy”, which is always a boring and with no interest. Then, when you try to combine different furniture pieces from different periods and styles, which have a huge personality, then the general end result needs to be understood like a coherent concept.

Best Interior Designers: Do you think working with teams in interior design is better or worse than working alone? Why?

L.A STUDIO: I would not personally understand how could working on my own be. From my point of view it is far too difficult having a knowledge about everything, so the main thing is to recognise your deficiencies and complete them with your team best skills.

FUTURE

Best Interior Designers: Do you think working with teams in interior design is better or worse than working alone? Why?

L.A STUDIO: We are currently working on a contract project of a hotel boutique located in Formentera. This is a great goal for the whole team, since we have been working so far on residential and urban parameters. So this is a challenge for us, since we have to be able to meet our requirements for a new environment and necessities.

 

Best Interior Designers: What has been your greatest accomplishment as a designer? What goals do you have for the future?

L.A STUDIO: Our biggest goals as a team and as brand have been to become a reference gallery in Spain. We have been innovative introducing a style and a selection of furniture that do not leave anyone indifferent. Being able to get people to know about us and about our projects makes us the best example of good and coherent job. However, generally speaking, we are not to work with melancholy or gloating in the past. Our sight keeps looking forward to the future and where we will be in 3 or 5 years.

Best Interior Designers: Do you have a favorite project or a favorite story about one of your projects?

L.A STUDIO: We remember every single project we have done so far in a great positive way, since we understand them as an amazing adventure that we have done together. Just to mention one, we remember as a lovely memory the project we did for an Italian couple. We had to build a cosy yet contemporary space at a former Cappuccine Abbey from the 12th Century. This project was a combination of fear and challenge. We ended up being so proud of the end result which marked a before and after in our career.
