Stone Designs is the story of two creators (Cutu Mazuelos 1973 and Eva Prego 1974) who in September 1995 started their adventure by creating their own studio, in order to develop their projects from a personal perspective, without censureship or interference. For this reason they never worked for anyone else and they forged their apprenticeship as it was done in the past, from below and with a lot of sacrifice. They began by doing interior designs, stands and displays. This field served them during the first years of their career, experimenting and studying different languages, showing a new understanding of design and our relationship with it. This allows them to concentrate exclusively on what they do best, designing. It has left them time to take on projects of much greater depth and to work with companies with which they truly feel an affinity with. Being independant has its advantages? From companies of friends that they love and admire for their dedication to designing premises for compaies such as Lexus, Telepizza, Havaianas, Coca Cola, and furniture for brands such as the Japanese Muji, the Swedish Offecct of the Spanish RS.
But the story of Stone Designs has not been a bed of roses. It is the story of two young hopefuls desiring to tell things in a different way. It is the constant search for new languages, a journey to the heart of the people around them doing what they do best ? design? No! But telling real stories, from within, sincerely full of experiences, of problems and later on, joy. It is their way of telling all of us how much our lives matter to them and that we can enjoy them in the best and most comfortable way possible, simply. They do not want to change the world or be the most popular, they simply want to reach our hearts and know that this journey takes much time and dedication.
In this sincere way, they show whenever they create something or give a conference, that they do it with naturalness and energy, with unusual excitement, despite their experience. They are like two people that do not stop telling stories and talking of what they discover each day. They try to make us see that life should not be as difficult as we sometimes make it, that there are millions of experiences that cost nothing and that it is there, in simplicity and naturalness where the source that makes us happy originates.
