The Valencian company Mariner, specialised in handcrafted luxury furniture and lighting, has been selected as winning company in the fourth round of a pioneer project, sponsored by the Valencia CF. Aim of the project is to give international visibility to distinct SMEs of the Valencian Community. Winning this competition means a great deal of support for Mariner, giving its international profile an important boost.
The furniture sector has for many decades, with a few ups and downs inherent in any industrial sector, had great importance among companies of the Valencian Community. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Valencia also is one of Spain’s leading cities in interior design. The activities of its Colegio de Diseñadores de Interior de la Comunidad Valenciana (Association of Interior Designers of the Autonomous Community of Valencia), enjoy wide international recognition and bring together a great number of interior designers.
Until 30 May, the Colegio Territorial de Arquitectos de Valencia (CTAV – Professional association of architects of Valencia) will show a collection of architectural drawings by famous Valencian architect Javier Goerlich in its exhibition hall. The exhibition focuses on Goerlich’s residential architecture between 1924 and 1942.
The museum of the City of New York will show a complete retrospective of the Valencian architect Rafael Guastavino’s legacy, under the framework of the exhibition ‘Palaces for the People’. Guastavino, although born in Valencia in 1842, developed his studios in Barcelona. In 1881 he emigrated to the US, accompanied by his son (also called Rafael, who over the years, also came to work hand in hand with his father), in the search for opportunities in the architectural sector, as he could find any in Spain, although he had already realized important projects like the La Massa Theatre in Vilassar de Dalt.
