Alfons & Damián is a three-way concept which combines Store, Gallery and Studio and makes Homestyle in a singular experience.
A journey through the world of interior design which takes in furniture, designer pieces and objects of art where the unexpected sets the tone. Unique pieces able to seduce with their own history or creation.
The more artistic side of the Alfons & Damián partnership offers singular creations by masters of design and our constant search for new talents is an ideal platform to intellectualize and personalize projects in each of our spaces.
We create concepts inspired by the ideas of our clients, then we take them through the whole process, providing complete design services and managing the whole project to ensure the best possible results.
At an early age I became interested in creating and discovering the beauty in things and situations which is not always visible to the eye.
This interest led me to study interior and industrial design. I would later set up my own studio Sis De Picas, which gave me the opportunity to work on numerous initiatives with leading names such as Globe, Mango and Teresa Helbig.
I have worked alongside renowned professionals such as Toni Bernard, Mario Sorrenti, Emmanuel Alt, Terri Richarson and Mario Testino, in projects in both the fashion industry and interior design. Thanks to these projects, I have received fantastic awards such as the AEDP prize in the year 2000.
My experience and reputation in this sector paved the way for my entrance into the world of teaching where I lectured in the Escuela Elisava and was appointed vice-president of Arquinfad.
Today, I have decided to share my passion for design with Alfons in the creation of this project which is a culmination of our knowledge and lengthy experience. The creation of a UNIQUE SPACE WHERE ART, DESIGN AND SENSITIVTY GO HAND IN HAND.
I always dreamt of working in the world of creativity. My devotion for art, together with my training in the Escuela EINA, soon grew into a deep sensibility and understanding of what has become my profession, interior design.
My passion for craftsmanship led me to create my first collection of wrought iron furniture under the name of Tost.
In 1995, I set up, together with María José Tost, Accions, a company which specialised in ephemeral floral decor then went on to create Alfons Tost Interior design, which has undertaken numerous residential and commercial projects such as Coure, The Hall and Monvínic. This last project being finalist in the FAD 2009 awards.
2015 marks the year that together with Damián, I am embarking on this dream project which once more inspires me to proclaim that BEAUTY AND PRACTICALITY ARE COMPATIBLE.
