Best of Barcelona: Santa & Cole Showroom

August 16, 2013

Barcelona-based Santa & Cole was founded in 1985 by Javier Nieto Santa, Gabriel Ordeig Cole, and Nina Masó, a trio of design professionals with a curatorial mission. “Our purpose is not to accumulate but rather to choose, not to enjoy thanks to the quantity but rather the quality.” They describe themselves as editors rather than manufacturers: “This way we select the best suppliers for each product category.” Santa & Cole products are available in the US through Ameico.
