Since 1994, Valencian designer Miguel Herranz has been working in practically all areas of design: furniture, lighting, car and bathroom design, ceramics, product design, experimentation with technology as well as interior design and exhibition stand design.
According to the designer, his methodology is ‘not having a methodology’. His way of working, he says, is ‘analytical and anarchic – I benefit from being in a state of anarchy which stimulates me to be more analytical’.
His career to date has seen him collaborate with very well-known Spanish brands in various sectors: lighting (LZF Lamps, Grupo B-Lux, Blauet), furniture (Viccarbe, Celda Diseño and Concepta) and bathrooms (Novum). He has also overseen the design of exhibitions both in Spain and abroad and has given lectures in schools and design workshops. And, at the same time as working as a designer, he has collaborated with others as a teacher and has sat on the jury of a number of interior design competitions for young designers.
He has won many awards, most notably for his Mikado lamp, manufactured by LZF Lamps, in 2006, the Design Plus prize awarded by the German Design Council, and the Good Design Award given by the Chicago Athenaeum in 2008.
