Jorge Penadés

Born in a small fisherman´s village of Málaga, he originally studied interior design in Barcelona before graduating in December 2014 from Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) in Madrid with a Master´s degree in experimental design and conceptual thinking, directed by Katharina Mischer & Thomas Traxler.

Jorge cultivates a dissident approach to the contemporary notion of design; he audits heterodox ideas in order to generate new opportunities for different companies, institutions or organizations which often manifest in new materials, objects, written pieces, one-off commissions or architectural experiences.

His work has been legitimized by different museums, galleries and design venues including Vitra Design Museum (Weil am Rhein), National Museum Design (Stockholm), Museu del Disseny (Barcelona), The Aram Gallery (London), Villa Noailles (Hyères), Rossana Orlandi (Milan), Machado-Muñoz (Madrid) or at London, Milan, Stockholm, Lima, Berlin, Madrid, Prague, Bratislava, Zagreb, Lodz and Dutch Design Week.
