Santa & Cole
Santa & Cole is a small, independent and global editor of well-designed products. With its roots in Belloch (Barcelona, Spain) it works in over 70 countries, driven by the quest for good civil coexistence and determined to foster that.
Santa & Cole has been exploring industrial design since 1985 – the art of scrutinising everyday objects to find their best use experience, and the one that therefore considers material culture. In any society, however primitive, the material culture can identify individuals and raise their spirit just as much as the intangible culture, although it is rarely paid as much attention.
Santa & Cole edits household and urban furniture and lighting, ranging from indoor lighting to large street lamps and benches for pedestrians. We also produce plant elements – trees – which are living matter, in our nurseries in Belloch. Not to mention books, which set out the lines that we would all be wise to follow. Although our range of products might seem random, they actually all converge in a common philosophy: not accumulating but rather selecting; not delighting in quantity but rather in quality; not to show but rather to share.
