The Catalan designer Eugeni Quitllet was born on 17th April 1972 in Ibiza. He graduated from 'La Llotja' art school in Barcelona, achieving a diploma in interior architecture and design. He began his career by working on installations for cultural organisations, such as the Joan Mirò Foundation. He also created ephemeral objects and spaces during the"Primavera Del Disseny" design biennial (1997, 1999 and 2001).
Through his creative vocabulary he exceeds simple relationships between function and style unveiling innovative objects. Between drawing, sculpture and contemporary archaeology, Quittlet literally reveals silhouettes hidden in the material, extremely visual skeletal objects elegantly master fullness and emptiness often with a touch of humour.

The only designer to have co-signed pieces with the French designer, Quitllet initiated with Starck what he calls a 'cool-laboration' in 2001 by descending on his house in Formentera. A flash of artistic brilliance that led to many projects for Kartell, Driade, Flos, Alias, Emeco, Xo, Magis, Dedon …
Eugeni Quitllet founded his studio in Barcelona in 2011.
