GAN is the indoor brand of GANDIABLASCO, and its starting point… In the late 80s, José Gandia-Blasco, president of the company, reinvented a family business that had been around for four decades. Faithful to the firm’s origins, José developed new lines of home textiles, betting big on design and incorporating the world of rugs to the offering. This is how the original GAN was born.

- Patricia Urquiola , 2014
Patricia Urquiola studied architecture at Madrid Polytechnic and Milan Polytechnic, graduating in 1989 with Archille Castiglioni as her metor. She was then given the position of being an assistant lecturer to Castiglioni and Eugenio Bettinelli in Mlan and Paris. Her designs are unconventional, emphatic, and experimental, blending humanist sensibilities and technical expertise – qualities that also inform her work as an architect. The Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Barcelona is one of her many architectural projects.
She was responsible for the new product development office of DePadova and worked with Vico Magistretti as head of Lissoni Associati's design group. In 2001, she opened her own studio and started designing for some of the most important Italian and international companies around the world. She has since been awarded the Gold Medal of fine arts by the Spanish Government and been declared "Designer of the decade" in the German magazines "Home" and "Hauser".
