Xavier Mañosa
The son of ceramicists, Xavier Mañosa, who was born in 1981, grew up surrounded by clay, potter's wheels and kilns. After studying industrial design and graphic design at Barcelona colleges Llotja and Bau School of Design respectively, he moved to Berlin to work there. There, his roots in ceramics allowed him to blossom and, on his return to Barcelona, he opened his own ceramics studio Apparatu. Today, the creative side of the business is based in Germany, while the production side is carried out in Barcelona. Apparatu takes a fresh approach to design, based entirely on using ceramics, while its products straddle the worlds of craftsmanship, industry and fine art. Integrated as they are into everyday life, Apparatu's designs eschew the idea of bourgeois luxury goods or elitist exclusivity.
