Benjamin Argudo (Valencia, 1978) lives since 2000 in Madrid where, after four years working in a multinational, he decided to study Interior Design at Iade. He tells us that he chose the school because of its flexibility of schedules, which allowed him to have more time to develop the proposed projects and investigate materials and trends.
No doubt the election was fortunate because Benjamin was awarded last year with the Easter Ortega Award Decor house for interior design students. His proposal, for the hall of a Hotel, consisted of two central modules of white ceramics with polished black glass floors and metal plates. All this within an environment set up for exhibitions respecting the materials of an old factory: exposed brick and iron pillars.
The winner is given the opportunity to present a space in the next edition of the contest.
The Pascua Ortega award has presented me to the public through the big door. Casa Decor is a unique opportunity to make people and professionals known in all areas: interior designers, furniture and material suppliers….
Benjamin has chosen the bathroom for your project He found this space of the house interesting, which sometimes is not given due attention but, nevertheless, turns out to be the place where we wake up, prepare to face the day and relax.
The colors, textures and materials: white, black and metal, as well as respect for the environment in which the space is originally located, bring us back to that first proposal deserving of the prize.
All personal details stand out: books, bicycle, flowers, paintings, iron chair, mirrors that reflect the environment and especially black and white marble, from Álvaro Guadaño, which serves as a framework for the whole:
My relationship with Álvaro Guadaño has been exceptional, it is a small but large company of spirit that has offered me full support to get the final result of the bathroom ... mention also Coysa for the transfer of the toilets and Gallery of Robles, Analcai, the Antiquarian from Belén, and Dolz international collection.
We can also appreciate some original creations, like the towel rail and the curtain rod, manufactured by himself with metal squares anchored to the ceiling.
Congratulations Benjamin, we look forward to your next job to be able to show it at Decoesfera.
