Established in 2002, lagranja is a multidisciplinary design studio created by Gabriele Schiavon and Gerard Sanmartí focusing its talent in the creation of interiors, products and small architecture. After a decade, the team at lagranja remains passionate and coherent about their core ideology: making design an aide to companies and brand names.
After a few years located in La Granja street (hence the name of studio) by early 2011 they moved to a new space in a modernist biscuit factory in Barcelona. Later, in 2013 the office in Istanbul was opened, followed by the Singapore one in 2018.
