ABOUT ME ME, ANDREA My name is Andrea, and I study Design at Elisava School. I study cross-disciplinary ,product and space, but with a passion for graphic design and photography. I believe that the key of a good and meaningful design lives on ideas which have to be worked with a lot of process, solid research and experimentation. I am inspired by creative and non-conforming people around me, who all are passionate about something, whatever it might be.

POSTER “THE JOB DESCRIPTION”
Students have to created a poster for an exhibition called “The Job Description”. In this exhibition every student has to create a commercial stand (space and product project). Moreover we had to make a poster, the one showed, which explains the character for the trade fair .
CHAIR PROJECT Students have to create a wood chair with only one premise. This chair just can be created with fittings unions. So, we had to create a chair through parts but these can only be united with 90ยบ. To sum up, I created a living chair, that you can easily assemble and disassemble. Also as we only had one rule I thought to maximize it, so I put very visible unions.
Description: Students have to design and create a folder (B4 format). Requirements: The folder must have to be created with a rigid material, enough to write on. The folder must be mono material (maximum two materials) Timing: One week Materials: The folder that I created was made of methacrylate and adhesive tape, and closed is with three neodymium magnets. Justification: The reason of these materials is because my folder is designed for people who travel by subway and have to study or take notes. The main reason for choosing this material is because you can see your notes and you can even write over the folder and then erase.
CREATION OF A KITCHEN PRODUCT Description: Students have to design and create a new kitchen product, following an action and an existing brand. Requirements: The product must accomplish one of these actions: separate, mix, take away or compress. The product must be mono material (maximum two materials). Timing: Three weeks The object that I created is a cooking steel plate that you add to the pan with your meal. This object has four slots which drive the fluids (water, oil, etc.) of the meat into a hole on the right site. This action makes that the fluids remains in the pan instead on the grill where the food is, and so they can prevent a good cooking. Chosen brand: IKEA Materials: Iron
MANUFACTURE PROCESS FROM THE IDEA TO REALITY
We had to make a foot from a plastic cup model. Once we designed our proposal (with low density foam) the next step was to make the silicone mold. After that, we strained resin inside (adding materials, colours, etc.) to obtain the reproductions. Firstly, I tried to make one that wasnâ€™t with traditional shapes and that invite the consumer to take the cup. But as I had to respect the one and only manufacturing process I decided to make geometrical shapes. The final proposal was a foot that has reminiscents of a rock, sliced from different angles but playing with the perfect symmetry to make it more stable since it had to hold a glass with liquid.
LA RICARDA The objective of this project was to design, prototype and present one or several objects for the interior or exterior of La Ricarda house, designed by the architect Antonio Bonet, also known as the Gomis house, is perhaps the most emblematic work he has done, and in architectural terms the best example of Catalan Rationalism. The objects among which we had to choose were: a barbecue, a car bar, a roomba, a light for the outside, a tv, a speaker or a stool with auxiliary table. Each group had to make one of these objects going in harmony with the house, this implied that the aesthetic characteristics of La Ricarda had to be shaped in the new element. At the end of the project the students had to photograph the designed product, in order to the images had advertising quality. After this, we had to create a catalogue with an consequent aesthetic. CONTEXT La Ricarda, is considered one of the architectural jewels of Catalan rationalism. As we have said before, Antonio Bonet Castellana, is the architect, born in Catalonia in 1913. We have to say that the most influential for the Catalan architect was Le Corbusier. This architecture was created as a summer house, located in Prat de Llobregat, in a territory surrounded by pine groves, next to the Mediterranean Sea. It was built on a dune and was placed on an artificial platform, extended in both directions thanks to the presence of framed vaults, which ended up becoming the essential and characteristic element of the house. During the post-war period, the art scene went into decline, so the owner of the house decided to make it as a hiding place for artists, artists such as; Joan Brossa, Joan Mirรณ, Carles Santos, etc. these intellectuals created the CLUB49, to try to recover the vanguard born during the Republic time.
CARRO BAR LA RICARDA
After seeing the wide range of objects we had to choose one, we decided to opt for the car bar, as it was the object that inspired us the most. The product we designed had an essential purpose, the product could be used both, interior and exterior of the house. In this way, we needed to use materials suitable for both areas. Thus, we decided to use dark metal and glass, because for us, they are the ones that define the general concept of La Ricarda, the rationality. Although we should not forget concepts such as elegance, simplicity, symmetry, balance and lightness, which also define it.
SPACE FROM A PLAN This work tried to create a space from a previously given plane. It was a space made of layers that had to combine horizontal and vertical planes on different floors, and we were completely free to do the work as we wanted but respecting the original plane.
COMPACT MULTIPURPOSE SPACE This work may be the opposite of the previous one. It was about creating a space from layer overlapping and creating a compact space where different kinds of activities could be done, such as reading, sleeping, sitting, etc. To summarize it was like a space in a solid block where the activities passed inside and the light had much importance.

This is the outcome of the project of product and space briefly explained before, the stand The Job Description. This is the process of creating a stand for the exhibition.
Él en su tiempo libre busca un ámbito tranquilo y relajado donde disfrutar o solo con tal de reflexionar o abstraerse o con buena compañía y probablemente disfrutando de un buen vino.
First we did a study of where our stand would be located within the exhibition, location, light, flows of people, etc. Consequently, we chose a topic from the stablished premises. Finally, my proposal was to create a new concept of wine from mixing it with natural flowers. Then, we had to find two key users who would come to our stand, these were a wine taster and a florist. Shortly after, we began to create a moodboard, ideas and first space proposals and also we began to think what kind of materials would be appropriate according to our idea. To finish, we perfected all these ideas, we created different models and plans every week until we obtained the final result that will be shown later.
