Pedro Paricio – Dreams

A few weeks ago we received an invitation to Pedro Paricio‘s new exhibition, Dreams. It is always an experience to see his work, but having followed his career for a few years now, it is even better to appreciate the evolution he has had. And he has lost his signature blazer, tie and hat for…

I think it is a brilliant item of magnificent design, mainly because of its simplicity and strong impact. This is what good design is all about.

For those of you who don’t know it yet, Tenerife is much more than the old beach holiday destination that people associate with its name.
