Frederic Perers and Jordi Tamayo recently have completed the Multiplastic.
Created in 1955, Multiplastic has become a classic of commercial landscape of Barcelona, always dedicated to the sale of plastic products. Multiplastic carefully selects items sold from a design concept that equates aesthetics and functionality, and that values innovation above all. The shop offers reference product manufacturers such as Lékué, Guzzini, Menu, Alessi or Habitare.
Frederic Perers (Barcelona, 1974) and Jordi Tamayo (Barcelona, 1972), authors of the new interior design of Multiplastic, have deployed a project that recovers the industrial character of the original space, visible especially in the beamed ceiling and the iron columns. The creation of a neutral container helps to differentiate the product from the domestic industry, and the lighting creates an atmosphere that updates the presence of the company’s corporate blue. Finally, the interior also plans to redefine the boundary between the commercial space and warehouse space, and the relationship of the store with the street, with a clear insight in both directions: from the street to the inside and vice versa. Multiplastic has been included in the Barcelona Design Tour by BCD.
Perers and Tamayo met in 1997 working in the Antoni Arola Studio. Perers is an interior designer, author of projects such as Splash Laundromat, the Tortosa Museum and the Espai Ermengol. Tamayo is an interior and product designer, he has worked for companies such as Valira, Rabasa and Ofita, and he is the author of New Oven.
