Barcelona Design With an Expert
Experience the most groundbreaking trends in design, from vintage to contemporary.
For centuries, Barcelona has been known for its revolutionary thought, behavior and creativity. Hosting the Universal EXPO of 1888 and the World Fair of 1929, the city earned an international reputation for innovation in Design – expressed most visibly through its architecture. Barcelona today remains dynamic, cosmopolitan, and at the forefront of the world’s artistic breakthroughs in everything from fashion and furniture design to graphic arts and interior decorating. The scope of styles, materials, textures, and technologies is staggering. It’s no wonder artists, architects, designers of all breeds, and all who seek to bask in the imagination of the world’s creative visionaries, make Barcelona a priority destination.
