Spanish Government Awards National Design Award to Figueras International Seating

Lliçà d’Amunt, Spain — Figueras International Seating has been awarded the National Design Award for its entire track record. The company specialises in profitability and the optimisation of space through a system of seats based in engineering, innovation and design.

This is the highest award in the field of design and innovation given to companies in Spain. The National Design Award, which is awarded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, recognises those companies that have used design as a driving force behind innovation processes and that show positive results in the market due its incorporation. This is one of the 7 awards that are included in the National Innovation and Design Awards that are awarded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness.

For Figueras, this award would not have been possible without the creative capacity and the ideas of the clients, as the design is focussed with the user in mind. According to Josep Figueras, “in reality our best designers are our clients, as it’s them who raise their real needs. It is their challenges that help us to innovate and to evolve as a company”.

Figueras International Seating started as a family run business whose brand strategy has been going through the process of business internationalisation since the 80s, always investing in high quality products with an innovative design. Figueras seats are a symbol of prestige and are found in some of the world’s most iconic buildings, such as the press briefing room at the White House or Room XX at the United Nations office in Geneva. The company has worked with architects such as Foster+Partners, OMA, Nouvel, César Pelli, Ricardo Bofill, Rafael de la Hoz, Renzo Piano and Cox Rayner, among others.
