After completing industrial design studies at the London College for Art and Design in 1996, Ana Mir and Emil Padros founded the shared design studio Emilana in the Spanish city of Barcelona.
Emil and Ana's work is characterised by a particularly conceptual approach. The designer duo experiments with new materials and challenges the viewer to proactively interact with design, e.g. with the Flying Carpet for nanimarquina, a carpet which offers more design and movement possibilities than regular rugs.
When it comes to their design, the designers emphasise the functional aspect, so that every design can be integrated into everyday life.
The designers' work spans from product and furniture design to the organisation and conception of exhibitions and interior designs.
