This lamp is the result of a collaboration between Boo in Barcelona and Estiluz.  The former is a specialist in the technical aspects of aluminium metal parts that does excellent work with anodized finishes, while the latter has contributed its knowledge and experience in lighting systems and has added the diffusers. The collaboration by the companies made it possible to bring this design by Pablo Figuera to production, who got the idea for the piece while working in Boo in Barcelona and which eventually materialized in this interesting table lamp.

FOLIO uses a flat pattern which is laser cut and is shaped with folds. The result is a minimalist lamp with clean lines.  The FOLIO is a functional lamp with pure, yet carefully studied profiles. Lateral folds, which serve as a shade while hiding the LED source, protects users from glare and offers precise lighting.  FOLIO is manufactured in aluminium, a 100% recyclable material, and is powered by low consumption LEDs, making this a product designed according to sustainable criteria.  FOLIO is kind to the environment and harnesses local talent since the entire production process takes place in Catalonia.

The FOLIO design has won several prizes such as the prestigious Design Plus 2012 prize awarded by the German Design Council and the ADI Bronze Medal 2012.

The designer

Pablo Figuera

Pablo Figuera (Madrid, 19881. Qualified in design at the Elisave School, Bachelor of Arts from the University of Southampton and PhD in Design Management from the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya.

After working as a designer at Boo in Barcelona, in 201 2 he founded his own design studio, GoulaIFiguera. One often thinks of conceptual and commercial design as two contradictory terms, but the work of Pablo Figuera finds itself in that intermediate point where commercial values and creativity meet and complement each other, creating a beauty business. When designing, from the very beginning, Pablo anchors himself to an inalienable principle: obsessive care of the shape of the object, which manifests its aesthetic value in the expression of the material, respect for the  manufacturing process and, of course, its use.

His pieces strive to be elegant and easy to understand, with great care to detail, and honest but always avoiding fun references, superfluous decoration, and with an appearance that goes beyond useful.

Pablo Figuera's career has been recognised with severa1 nominations and prizes, some of which are: Lexus Design Award (20131 1 Critics Red Aede Prize (2013),  lnjuve Prize (2012), ADI bronze medal(2012), Design Plus (20121 among others.
