Juan & Paloma Garrido are actually the owners of Garrido Gallery, but they also have their own exclusive furniture design collection.
At their atelier, there is a surprising contrast between old and new, between the antique and the thoroughly modern. The intimate, family-run workshop was scattered with a wide array of traditional hand tools, appearing more like an eighteenth-century survey of silversmithing tools by Diderot than a contemporary studio. A rare and vanishing tradition that the designers insist to bring to nowadays homes with a contemporary touch.
Preserving the art of silversmithing is a family legacy for the Garridos, begun by Damián fifty years ago and carried on today by his two children, Juan and Paloma. The result of their dedicated approach is not only a product of the highest level of quality but also one of innovation and modernity. Building upon the history their father left them, Juan and Paloma approach their designs with an avant-garde sensibility. While their works employ the geometry and angularity of Cubism, a rational clarity radiates from the smooth, unadorned surfaces, forming a study in volume and line.
One of the most innovative ateliers working in silver today, Juan and Paloma Garrido uses dying techniques to form intensely modern designs that strike a harmonious balance between history and innovation, line and curve, solid and void. In the end, it is the timeless beauty of each piece that marks their success.
