Antoni Arola, 2013
Antoni Arola is a leading figure in the current panorama of Spanish design. His work is characterized by its versatility, which has allowed him to approach brilliantly the design of a bottle of perfume or a lamp, as well as the interior design of key spaces in our days. His work won the 2003 National Design Award.
Born in Tarragona in 1960, Antoni Arola was trained at the Eina school in Barcelona, which ended in 1984. He then went to work in prestigious professionals' offices: he spent five years in the Lievore and Pensi studio and four years in Associate Designers, AD , a leading factory of the technological design at that time, directed by Ramón Bigas and Pep Sant. In 1994 he left AD and, thanks to his wealth of knowledge and experience, he founded his own studio, Estudi Arola.
Arola's first experience in the field of lighting dates back to 1994, when he designed a collection of lamps. In 1997 he created the Nimba lamp, a lamp in the shape of a luminous halo, designed for Santa & Cole, which launched him to fame as a designer and earned him an ADI-FAD award.
Some of his most well-known and awarded works are the interior design project of the gastronomic store Mos (award to the "Best store in the world" of the City of Barcelona in 1999), the packaging of the fragrance Armand Basi (Prize of the Fragance Foundation International 1999), the Ishi-Doro lamp series for Metalarte (Delta Silver Award ADI-FAD 1999), the Pallucco lamp (2000) presented at the last edition of the Milan fair and which definitively consecrated him as an industrial designer, the System Chlorine fluorescence fluoride for Santa & Cole (2001), the interior design of the chocolate shop Cacao Sampaka (2000) and the Moaré Series (2003), edited by Santa & Cole. Since receiving the National Design Prize in 2003, Arola has reached a creative fullness that is reflected for example in its lamps for Santa & Cole, such as the Tau (2005) or the Cubrik (2006). For Arola, "The designer is just a catalyst, a mediator, a filter, everything is in the air, you just have to make it concrete, transforming ideas into objects that will improve everyone's quality of life". Another aspect to highlight of Arola's work is that of the ephemeral facilities for fairs, where he expresses his abilities in only a limited period of time.
Fascinated by the African continent and by the extraordinary designs of satellites and spacecraft, Arola is steeped in the influence of forms and icons of foreign cultures, such as Japanese and African. In these original cultures he finds a symbolism and a way of understanding the world that he incorporates into his work and his daily life. In his works, he also reveals his sculptor facet, his fondness for drawing and his interest in the art of his time. In design, he admires, above all, common sense.
In the spring of 2007, Arola celebrated the tenth anniversary of their studio with an exhibition, an audiovisual installation, in La Sala Vinçon in Barcelona. To accompany the exhibition, he created Ten Light Years, a book published by Santa & Cole that reviews the decade that Arola has dedicated to playing with light, and in which he reveals the story that explains each of his creations.
