Interview with Vanessa Moreno, architect and designer
I’ve been a fan of Vanessa’s work for a while now, and you may as well know her work already, but not know about her. Here is a short interview to let you know a bit more about this talented designer. Most of the items in pictures here (and much more) are available for sale on her online shop, so make sur you take a look.
Could you introduce yourself to Designer Daily’s readers?
I’m spanish architect and designer and I live between Berlin and Valencia. I work mostly in interior design.
How did you get into design?
I went from the big to the small scale. I began designing buildings, later interior spaces and finally objects. It’s quite the same, just there is a quantum size difference.
Can you tell our readers about your design process?
I designed lofts, commercial spaces, some scenography and exibitions. I feel more interested in transformations and restaurations of the existing spaces than in the new constrution; in this way, my work has more respect to the existing patrimony. Also about industrial design I’m more interested in reusing and upcycling objects to be able to decrease the overproduction and save the enviroment.
What tools and software do you use on a regular basis?
For architecture I use Autocad, 3d max, Sketch up and for design also photoshop, illustrator, etc..
Which of your projects are you the most proud of and Why?
One loft I made with my owns hands and it was really hard. I had big problems with the workers having so direct relationship but the final result and the experience were really satisfactory.
What websites, blogs and magazines do you read on a regular basis?
About blogs I visit Dezeen, Designboom, Designer Daily, Notcot, Inhabitat, coolhunter, Mocoloco… and about magazines I like Frame, Mark and the spanish El Croquis and Neo2
Which designers have been inspiring you?
My favourite architects are Mansilla y Tuñon, Sauerbruch Hutton and Steven Holl for the shapes, colours and textures and my favourite designers are El último grito and Basurama for all their work about reuse and recycle.
Thank you Vanessa for answering my questions.
