I am Alberto Virgos, a Product Design student interested in understanding and researching the limits of materials and manufacturing in order to develop innovative and ergonomic products. I desire to use my creativity and knowledge to resolve actual needs and problems and improve daily life through determination and hard work. Soy Alberto Virgos, un estudiante de Diseño de Producto interesado en comprender e investigar los límites de los materiales y la fabricación, con el fin de desarrollar productos ergonómicos e innovadores. Poseo la intención de utilizar mi creatividad y mi conocimiento para resolver las necesidades y problemáticas actuales. Intentando mejorar día a día a través de trabajo constante y determinación.


My name is Alberto Gracia Virgos and I am currently studying my third year of Product Design in ELISAVA School of Design and Engineering. Despite focusing mainly on the conceptualization and development of new products, I also have a great interest in other disciplines such as Space and Graphic Design. For me, not having knowledge in a field is not a limitation, but an opportunity to expand your skills and improve vision and work. For what I am willing to work and collaborate in any type of project. By understanding design as a tool capable of generating the terms to create an impact on society. One of the most important thing is understanding and valuing first the tradition and the past, allowing to establish the basis for a project with purpose and in order to improve the systems established at present. If we really want to move forward, we must first know how our environment works.

Alberto Virgos

Mi nombre es Alberto Gracia Virgos y actualmente estoy cursando el tercer año de diseño de producto en ELISAVA School of Design and Engineering. A pesar de centrarme principalmente en la conceptualización y el desarrollo de nuevos productos, también poseo un gran interés por las otras disciplinas del diseño como espacio y gráfico. Para mí, el no poseer conocimientos en un campo no es una limitación, sino una oportunidad para ampliar tus habilidades y poder enriquecer mi visión y mi trabajo. Por lo que estoy dispuesto a trabajar y colaborar en cualquier tipo de proyectos . Desde mi perspectiva, el diseño es una herramienta capaz de dotarnos las facilidades para crear impacto en la sociedad. Entender y valorar primero la tradición y el pasado, permite asentar las bases para un trabajo con un propósito, mejorar los sistemas establecidos en la actualidad. Si realmente queremos tener un impacto y avanzar, primero debemos conocer cómo funcionaba y funciona nuestro entorno.

Outfits created for RO.


RO, are fashion accesories created because of using digital manufacturing, specifically laser cutting and engraving to produce the final pieces. Working with laser engraving on the felt can create a velcro so the material itself performs double functionality, adjustment and structure. It has managed to generate an innovation in the properties of the material.The goal of this project lies in the research and experimentation of the application of new technologies to different materials, discovering new ways of design.

The design consists of 3 pieces: A textile body, cotton pillow and a cork base. amb besides worrying about the care of your baby respects the environment for being manufactured from a single material, organic cotton. This facilitates the recycling and transformation of the product once its useful life has ended. Through experimenting with textile techniques like basketry, warping and felting I discovered some properties of cotton and fabrics to develop a new product design. For the final product, was necessary to use cotton materials provided by Organic Cotton Colours and create the brand identity for the product. Aiming to had coherence between naming, logo and art direction for the photography, graphic communication and the product.

A multifunctional product for carrying and caring babies. It can turn into a hammock and a basket. Un producto multifuncional dedicado al cuidado y transporte de bebés. Se convierte en hamaca y cesto.

El diseño consta de 3 piezas: Un cuerpo textil, almohada de algodón y una base de corcho. amb además de preocuparse por el cuidado de su bebé respeta al medioambiente al estar fabricada a partir de un único material.

Academic project January-March 2018 Mentors: Martín Ruíz de Azúa Raquel Llaberia Beorlegui David Manuel Maio Bota Collaborator company: Organic Cotton Colours Shooting model: Clara Planas Torrella

A través de la experimentación con cestería, urdimbre y enfieltro, se descubrieron algunas propiedades del algodón y las telas que sirvieron para desarrollar el nuevo producto. Para el producto final, fue necesario utilizar los materiales proporcionados por Organic Cotton Colours y, generar una imagen de marca para el producto. Con la finalidad de que todo tuvieran una coherencia se diseñó el naming, logo, dirección de arte de fotografía, la comunicación gráfica y el producto.
