New to the Cafe Culture + Insitu brand is Punt, from Valencia Spain.
November 27th, 2014
Set up in 1980 by designers Vicent Martínez and Lola Castelló and technician Francisco Fernández, Punt has Won many prizes and awards, including the Spanish National Design Prize in 1997.
The company has an innovative approach to furniture design, both domestic and contract, working with approximately 15 international designers to collaborate on various pieces.
Taking a conceptual approach to their name, the company chose Punt. As, a point is the beginning of a line, and Punt means point. A line is a series of points following a certain direction through space – that is Punt. The points from Punt that go to make up the collection are practically infinite.
“Many of these ´´punts´´,” they say, “are happy encounters, happy discoveries; others are still searches, seeking serendipity. Some ´´punts´´ are in two dimensions (such as these graphics and communications); others are in three (such as our furniture) and others still pertain to the fourth dimension, by which we mean people: designers, clients, suppliers, friends and all the people who make this story possible through their individual efforts.”
