Introducing Granada - a brand new collection from designer Carlos Jiménez. Taking its name from the city Carlos spent part of his childhood, Granada still inspires him after all these years. This design was inspired by the artisanal lights that line the streets of Granada - paying homage to the historic art of lamp making. Granada Wall Light hangs down from its base giving your entryways and bedsides a welcome glow. Each diffuser can be placed upside down or right side up, giving you two designs in one light. When lit, a ribbed pattern is revealed, similar to an iconic paper lantern.
Every time I face a new design project, I try to find a story that will be the starting point. This story will be linked to the concept and, in the end, the product will be able to tell that story on its own. These stories come from my experiences, my travels and in the case of Granada – my upbringing. Both my aesthetics and my concepts come from pieces of my past so, I would say that my design philosophy is quite connected to my background.
I really like finding ideas in nature and regular life. I love walking around taking photos of buildings and details on the streets. I also enjoy trying to find old furniture pieces from old catalogs and magazines. In general, I try to keep my eyes quite open because everything can be a great inspiration.
Granada Collection is for anyone who values original design and enjoys the process of curating their own home. They enjoy a healthy balance of classic and modern, earthy and neutral. They are always looking for something special, wherever they shop.
