La Siesta

“La SIESTA is a white terracotta bottle that combines the look of a 1.5 Litre water bottle with the advantages of a traditional botijo (porous clay container for water). A different way of drinking.”

GANDIABLASCO re-launches an iconic Spanish design: La SIESTA botijo recovers the traditional materials and textures so typical of Mediterranean life and sustenance, nature, light and the passion for outdoors living, through an object associated with Spanish culture used for storing and drinking water, but in a different way.

We invite you to take a sip Mediterranean style.

About Héctor Serrano

The constant exchange between these areas enriches the process, giving rise to successful, long lasting products and projects. The client list includes companies such as Roca, Moooi, ICEX Spanish Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade, Droog Design, Metalarte, La Casa Encendida (Caja Madrid) and Valencia City Council among others. The Office has received different awards such as the Peugeot Design Award and The Premio Nacional de Diseño No Aburridos. Their Products have been exhibited extensively in Museums such as V&A in London and Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York and are part of different collections such as the Central Museum of Amsterdam.
