Founded by Gloria Margenat in Barcelona in 2008, Arxe is a design studio focused on creating furniture and one-of-a-kind textiles for the home from salvaged industrial materials. The principals “search across Europe to find antique furniture and old industrial materialsâ€”wood, leather, iron, steel, and textiles”â€”which they bring back to their warehouse in Catalonia to be refashioned into one-off or limited edition pieces. We’re particularly fond of the patio furniture.
To see more of the studio’s work, go to Arxe; a small selection of work is offered at the Woki Organic Market in Sant Cugat del VallÃ¨s, Spain.
