UNESCO Cities of Design

Fernando Abellanas

Fernando Abellanas, a designer of products and furniture living in Valencia, founded a studio that is conveniently hidden under a bridge.

Fernando created his own pop-up studio by setting up a rail and metal box assembly under the bridge where vehicles pass through every second. The designer put a table and a chair, pictures of his two dogs on the shelf as companions in this tiny space, and says that’s everything he needs to be productive.

Fernando Abellanas wants to keep the location of his studio secret. The designer sees this area as a short-term location, until someone finds it and steals the items there.
