Goula/Figuera Studio

Bio

Álvaro Goula (Barcelona 1989) and Pablo Figuera (Madrid 1988), meet studying at Elisava (Barcelona). In 2012 they quit the studio they had founded along with two friends in order to create Goula/Figuera Studio, from where they work on contemporary product design for companies, experimental design and creative consultancy.

In 2013, they start teaching at the university and, by mid 2015, Goula / Figuera launches Home Adventures, a new brand born to allow the duo to put into the market ideas that had remained on the margin of their usual design work for other companies. Lines & Dots, the first product of the company, is acclaimed by the press and has a great acceptance in the market.

After two years of growing sales, in the spring of 2018 Home Adventures becomes GOFI, a new brand that inherits the catalog from its predecessor and presents a wide variety of new products.

When designing, Pablo and Álvaro try to remain in the middle point between conceptual and commercial design, where the industry values and the creativity converge and feed back each other. Their creations expect to be elegant and easy to understand, but always running away from funny references and superficial decoration.

Their work has been exhibited in cities such as Stockholm, Frankfurt, Madrid, Barcelona or Milan, and has been awarded, among others, with the Design Plus, the Injuve Award, the Critics’ Choice Red-AEDE or the Lexus Design Award.
