Martín Azúa y Gerard Moliné

“exploration , detection , asking yourself questions are steps before creation”

Martin A. 1965 and Gerard Moline 1977 are a trans-generational team. We both share experimental and conceptual design work, which nourishes our commercial activity. Innovation is important for us even if it doesn’t appear in a form but in new benefits. We like thinking about objects in every day situations to see what they lack, what are their problems and how they can be improved.
We work with the concept called “simplex” when designing our products. An object is the spark in the relationships of different people and a well-designed product generates positive attitudes. A simple concept is always valuable for us and it is referred to an attitude which values things as they are and how they seem. Simplicity is not out of keeping with the existence of an object that is responsible for filling a personal need for creation and possession.
With “simplex” we condition the idea of simplicity with no loss of emotional and sensuous intensity. Objects are made more simple, more understandable at all levels. We like to think that the user is an accomplice of our ideas and that - at the end our work – things will make sense because of it.

Among other things, we created the water medals for the Swimming World Championship in Barcelona 2003 and the dossier for the Olympic Candidature of Madrid 2012. Nowadays we collaborate with important companies designing all kinds of objects: furniture, jewellery, accessories...
Our work has been exhibited in Paris, London, Berlin… and in the near future will be on show at the MoMa in New York. It has also been published in prestige magazines such Domus, Frame, Intramuros, Diseño Interior, etc…..
