SLOW Spain

Bringing together the work of 17 students selected from 9 Spanish design schools, SLOW Spain: Slow design for fast change showcases the talent and ideas of the emerging design generation while exploring the material possibilities of four sustainable but underused American hardwoods.

The projects, all focused on furniture design, have been mentored by renowned designers Inma Bermúdez and Moritz Krefter (Studio Inma Bermúdez), Álvaro Catalán de Ocón (ACdO) and Jorge Penadés (Oficina Penadés). Together with the students, they have worked to refine and shape their ideas using a selection of sustainable American hardwoods.

The collection will be exhibited for the first time from 7 February-12 March 2023 at the Fernán Gómez Cultural Center of the Villa, as part of the official programming of the Madrid Design Festival 2023.
