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.

GOFI

GOFI is a contemporary design company producing furniture, lighting and home accessories. It was founded in 2018 by Goula/Figuera Studio, but the business’ origin goes further back to 2015, when under the name “Home Adventures”, the Barcelona based studio introduced the family of lamps Lines & Dots, which had a great international coverage.

GOFI’s Collection Nº1 includes from chairs to graphic work and tries to keep the “adventurous” spirit of the very first product that led the way. Simple and clean designs but striking at the same time and handcrafted in Spain in small series.

Production:

All our products are made in Spain in small series or upon request. Being close to our suppliers allows us to control the quality and adapt or customize many of our products in order to fit the needs of architecture and interior design professionals.

A chair that looks back

The Gofi chair is drawn in a fast stroke: straight lines, a circle and a rectangle; an apparently simple design that revisits the traditional chairs with a tubular steel structure. The joint between the backrest and the tube, commonly made using rivets or screws, in this case is almost made in a magical way, thanks to a invisible structure hidden inside the backrest. Thus, the focus of interest of this design relays on its back side, the side of a chair we see the most when it’s placed next to a table.

The Gofi chair is available in many finishes: black lacquered beech wood or matt varnished oak. Both options are also available with an upholstered seat.
