one day I received an email from central saint martins design student vincenco di maria. it was a group email. he let some people know that there is some large desk space to rent at imperial works, seven sisters, north london. (contact oscar if you are interested!) I answered and asked if I can move in instead. the good price made me ask that. In the end I couldn’t move in but I got an invitation for a cup of tea in the studio.
so, I had the pleasure to meet oscar diaz from spain. he has studied fine art in his homeland, holds a diploma in Industrial design from the école des beaux-arts de bordeaux, and did his master in product design at the royal college of art. what a mix. he was attending the rca with some of the guys from the okaystudio.
oscar’s favourite movie is luc besson’s léon: the professional. maybe because he is from the spanish city léon. he loves to drink his tea without milk and fancies paella. when it comes to his work you discover an approach of graphic design. right now oscar works on a movable suspended lamp. I hope that he will find the right manufacturer for it – its a nifty one, the lamp.
