Jordi Canudas lives in the historic center of Barcelona. “The thing I like the most about my neighborhood is that it still belongs to the residents,” explains Jordi. “In the historic center, that’s becoming more and more rare.” He thinks that people actively participating in shaping their living spaces and curating the public spaces according to their own expectations and needs is a type of democratic movement.
The designer is a member of the OKAY Studio collective and especially enjoys working with light. He sees the creation of his products—lamps, furniture, design objects—as an adventure with an unforeseeable outcome. Jordi loves Barcelona because of its remarkably multifaceted attractions, like the traditional Mercat de Santa Caterina located in the historic center, and, of course, the beautiful weather.
