The renowned digital platform for architecture and design Archiproducts took advantage of GANDIABLASCO presenting at the 2019 edition of the Salone del Mobile, in Milan, by interviewing José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales, Founder, President and Creative Director of the Grupo Gandia Blasco, and Daniel Germani, the new Creative Director of the GANDIABLASCO brand.

During the interview Daniel Germani talks about the extension to the iconic Solanas collection, launched last year with the inclusion of Cocoon as well as the Solanas chairs and tables. Germani highlights the choice of the new metallic white gold colour, a timeless tone that compliments the very essence of GANDIABLASCO. “We are presenting a sober collection expressed in attenuated colours to show a more masculine side of the line that to some extent is quite feminine, with its marked curves,” explains Germani.

José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales introduces the launch of the new version of DNA during the interview, designed in teak wood which is another of the latest important updates presented by GANDIABLASCO at the Salone del Mobile. A collection originally designed by José over 13 years ago using just aluminium profiles, his material of choice for the GANDIABLASCO brand, and which this year has been combined with teak hardwood, a natural and warm material that is familiar to all of us.

And on the other hand José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales talks about the brands that make up the Gandia Blasco group: GANDIABLASCO the outdoor furniture brand, GAN the indoor brand specialising in rugs and accessories. And the youngest of their brands DIABLA that includes outdoor furniture collections and accessories created for enjoying life outdoors, with daring and avant-garde designs that are not afraid of introducing colour.

Both point to the evolution of the GANDIABLASCO brand which this coming year we will be able to appreciate afresh after the incorporation of Daniel Germani as the creative director. “Our idea is to find new voices that can bring new ideas to our brand, so that little by little we can see identifiable changes that maintain the values of GANDIABLASCO but seen from a different viewpoint,” points out Daniel Germani.
