TEAM LA INVISIBLE
Maria Güell Ordis
Set designer by ESAD.She founded the La Invisible studio, 2003. Head Curator of the LlumBcn festival. Co-director of the Master's Degree in Architectural Lighting Design at UPC. Teacher at Elisava school and Eina school. She studied scenography interested in the design of what provides meaning in a space without taking up space. She professionally initiates her career by lighting shows/performances. Later, she experiments on the space-light relationship and the enormous capacity to improve the environment of people. She approaches these aspects of light from various fields, design, Art, Architecture, landscape, the product. Directing the studio is one of her main tasks, although management and teaching also occupy an important part of her time and are above all a great impulse to investigate and seek new professional, conceptual and technical strategies.
Bachelor Degree in Interior Design at Escola Bau in Barcelona.
Discovering the potential of light and the possibilities that it brings to spaces made her start his professional career in lighting design, a discipline little recognized at the time. She started working in the world of lighting, in different showroms, where she gained experience developing small lighting projects. After a few years, she decided to take the Master in Architectural Lighting Design at the UPC to consolidate his knowledge. In 2018 she began to be part of La Invisible studio where she carries out lighting projects in different areas such as architecture, museography, urban planning and landscaping, among other tasks.
Xavier Fernández Carrasquet
Industrial Design Engineer.
He directs the product area of La Invisible studio since 2019 where he contributes his vision of design based on observation, experimentation and the construction of proposals that come from the needs. Throughout his professional career, he has led the CHAL, WEVER & DUCRE and LAMP design teams where he has been able to complement his vision of design as a collaborative discipline between disciplines and necessarily transversal in companies. He understands light as another material in the luminaire design, which has to be built together with the materiality of the proposals itself.
Design of products at the Elisava school.Interested in formal and aesthetic research. He began to work in the design sector at Curro Claret's studio and that's where he collaborates for the first time with La Invisible. His curiosity focuses him towards research in design and he studies a University Master's Degree in Research and Experimentation in Design at Bau.In 2019 he becomes part of La Invisible Lab as a junior product designer. On a daily basis, he combines manual work and experimentation at the workshop with industrial design work at La Invisible studio.
