About the Designer
She studied Fine Arts at the San Carlos School in Valencia. In 1984 she founded the design studio La Nave together with ten partners, an unusual experience in the Spanish design scene that became a reference of Valencian design of that time. She stayed with La Nave until its dissolution in 1991. Later, she created Estudio Ni 1001/97 and Figuerola + Galen 1997 / 2008. In 2008 she set up her own studio. She develops her activities in different areas, going from graphic design to editorial design, collaborating with Spanish and international companies. Interested in cultural design, especially with contemporary languages, some highlights of her work are the collaboration with Teatres de la Generalitat, the graphics used at the inaugural concerts of the Palau de Les Arts Reina Sofia of the recent image created for the Ruperto Chapi centenary. As regards textile design, her highlights are the carpet collections designed for Gandia Blasco, the Oh La La bed linen and bathroom collections for the company Atrium and the children' clothes collection designed for Rapife. Her interest in the profession extends to other fields, such as teaching. She works as a teacher for the graphic design master degree at CEU San Pablo since 2007, as well as for the Own Title master degree at the Faculty of Fine Arts since 2007. In 2006 she organizeed and held a design workshop in the city of Santa Clara (Cuba).

Beautiful design, easy to clean and maintain. Order rug pads for these rugs because they are light weight and will slide when walked on without an appropriate rug pad. The "white" in the rug is not a true white. It's more of a natural wool white. The other colors are deep and closely resemble those depicted online.
