2016 CATALOGUE “An Odyssey – Back to the islands – Chapter II

DAYBED by José A. Gandía-Blasco

“But true travellers depart for the sake of departing; light hearted, like balloons, they can never escape their destiny and without knowing why exactly they always say: Let’s be off!”

Fragment from the poem ‘The Traveller’, by Charles Baudelaire.

GANDIABLASCO celebrates its 75th anniversary presenting its new outdoors furniture catalogue inspired by Homer’s ‘The Odyssey’: chapter II of the journey through the Mediterranean and its myths illustrated with evocative images and accompanied with adapted texts by writer and journalist Matilde Oriola.

‘An Odyssey’ represents a return home after a long journey of adventures and apprenticeship. For GANDIABLASCO, chapter II means the continuation of the journey back to the origins of the brand, the pure design essence and the passion for outdoor living, with the blue Mediterranean as the point of departure and arrival.


“Only a completely free creative voyage allows us to explore the unimagined forms of future habitats that guide us along the way to a return Home.”

The elegant and essential DNA collection stands out amongst the new launches for 2016, designed by José A. Gandía-Blasco, together with new pieces from Fran Silvestre Arquitectos, Borja García, Héctor Serrano, Alberto Martínez, Raky Martínez and Mario Ruiz, that continue with the second chapter of ‘An Odyssey’.

The spirit of the brand maintains its essence: bringing together design and architecture to create furniture that is an natural extension of its setting. The perfect excuse to enjoy outdoor spaces, during 365 days of the year anywhere in the world.
If you’re only looking for certainties in life this journey is not for you.
