works from 'the inhabitable space' exhibition, valencia, spain

‘distendido’ by guillem ferran

at the end of september, the annual ‘habitat valencia’, a five day long show of design products and manufacturers was held in valencia, spain. during this year’s event, the exhibition ‘the inhabitable space’ took place, featuring work by a group of young, spanish designers including cristina toledo, guillem ferran, luis eslava and paco caballer. the pieces which were on show questioned how we utilize and create personal space, presenting some tangible solutions for those living in tight spaces.
