The curious look

Roger Valcells has visited us, he is a partner for this year’s novelties. When Roger designs a product or a space, his main objective is to create an emotional connection between the project and its user. He is a tireless innovator, a creator of beauty, always looking for simplicity and functionality in daily objects. In your luminaries, he has combined each and every one of those qualities. We are delighted to have him on our team, and eager to present his work. @rogervancells
