Mermelada Estudio:
Juanmi Júarez, Alex Estévez, and Laura Blasco
Where was your favorite place to live?
Barcelona. We love our city, the people, the weather and the food.

What’s your favorite room in your home?
We all have a terrace in our apartments and it is our favourite place. We love host parties there and bring our friends over.

In your opinion, what is the best designed item of all time?
There are many. If we had to choose one, it would be the Eames Fiberglass Chairs because of their importance in the history of design.

How do you get around?
Laura rides a Vespa, Juanmi a Ducati and Alex a bicycle.

What one item do you wish you owned?
Laura wishes she had a greenhouse, while Juanmi´s wish list is too long to put it here. Alex covets a house in Cap de Creus in Northern Catalonia, one of the most beautiful places in the world—Salvador Dalí had a villa there.

What are your interests outside of design?
Laura loves shoes, Juanmi fancies cars and motorcycles and Alex enjoys acting—right now he is working on a play.

Who are you design icons?
We have many, but if we had to name one it would be Tappio Wirkkala.

Form vs. function?
Form together with function. We do not think of these two as opposites.

What is your personal decorating style?
We love to mix contemporary design pieces with vintage furniture and traditional objects from all around the world. We really treasure handmade objects.

What’s your favorite element/possession?
Laura’s favourite possession is a coat hanger from her gran, Juanmi’s a Lladró special edition of a porcelain Ford Fiesta from the seventies and Alex’s a watch from his grandpa.

What’s your biggest indulgence?
It has to be breakfast. Every time we have the chance we have breakfast in the studio with friends, other designers, artists, neighbours, clients… they are always welcome to our table.

What’s the best career advice you ever received? Ever gave?
“There is no place where success comes before work, except in the dictionary.” which is commonly attributed to Donald Kendall, the co-founder of PepsiCo®.
