New Artist at Direktorenhaus: Carla Cascales

The designer and sculptor Carla Cascales lives and works in Barcelona. She designs instal­la­tions and objects with natural surface struc­tures of marble, fine woods and glass. In addi­tion to her free­lance work as a designer, she also produces these in the form of commis­sioned works for inte­rior design projects. She would like to “find beauty in imper­fec­tion, profun­dity in coarse­ness, and honor her authen­ticity”.

In recent years, Cascales has worked with fashion brands, commis­sions and studios in Spain. Her objects have often been shown in group and solo exhi­bi­tions inside and outside Spain, for example in the White Wall and H20 galleries in Barcelona and in the MilkyWay Art instal­la­tion New York. Cascales regu­larly gives talks about design processes and their work, most recently at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and the Conde Duque Art Center in Madrid.
