From childhood he learned that the best way to hide was to place himself in a conspicuous place and do as everyone else was doing, but this was never necessary. Characterised by a rebellious and transgressive spirit, he always had plenty to say and very little desire to be silent.


It all started, as these things usually do, at his birth. His parents gave him a grown-up name, the name of a serious person, a man with a mustache and brown suit, a lawyer or the author of tedious stories. But also from his birth he wanted to be a child; an extroverted character with unkempt hair, a
punk or the creator of wild and incredible stories.


Gonzalo Inigo was born in Zaragoza on September 29, 1985. He quickly realized that some things that apparently served only a single function greatly interested him. There was no relationship that united these things, yet he found it difficult to stop thinking about them. Over time he learned that there was someone behind each and every one of these objects, someone who had bled for it, someone who had brought it from the ethereal world of the imagination and who had placed it in the foreground. He has spent most of his life trying to figure out what it is that unites all these things and perhaps that's why today he is a designer.



To find his way in life he had to abandon his small home town at an early age, the place where he had spent his childhood and where he had learned to play with almost nothing, with freedom and with much imagination. From the age of 16 he studied at the School of Arts and Crafts in Zaragoza, first at secondary school level and then later studying ephemeral architecture. During those 6 years he learned that there is nothing more difficult than trying to speak without words. Once he had found his stride, he moved to Madrid, to study at IED (European Design Institute), in order to learn to speak.


Shortly after his arrival he began to be talked about while leaving many speechless. He stripped naked as astonished teachers and peers looked on for his project “Second Skin?” a conceptual demonstration to show that jewels are not necessary. And this has been his tone throughout his career at IED, where he has also achieved notable successes such as the great opportunity to present his project "Regression" in the
Shanghai Exhibition, 2010, a project that Gonzalo recognizes as his most personal and
autobiographical to date.


Outside the school, he has received awards including the most recent for his project "We eat the (plastic) Christmas" which he created with his partner Maria Sanchez. The project is strongly characterized by a rebellious and non-conformist spirit.



He is passionate about his projects and at the same time it brings him down bitterness street, because pulling the petals off a daisy was never an exact science. Read Less
