Small-scale yields are maintained according to sustainable, regulated practices and the work of a devoted team.
Marta Armengol is an architect and artist that creates furniture and beautiful glass-blown objects, inspired by poetry, philosophy, and architecture. She plays with experimentation, using errors and material possibilities rather than searching for definitive solutions.
