Masquespacio presents its last interior design project for lifestyle shop Gnomo, situated in the well acclaimed Valencia quarter Ruzafa. The project has its departure from the store specialized in objects and decora-tion that decided to open in 2010 in Valencia as an ode to design and a particular lifestyle that seeks for originality and beautiful things as told by the owners. To celebrate their sixth birthday they decided to move to a new street in the popular quarter Ruzafa and count on Masquespacio for the design of their new home.

About the interior project in first case Masquespacio decided to maintain the eighties aspect from the space, adding a contemporary touch to it. A granite floor with a smooth color was added, together with white walls and a touch of blue and green to create a cheerful and amusing feeling to the lifestyle shop.

Ana Hernández, creative director of Masquespacio: “Taking in count that Gnomo sells different kind of objects from a wide set of brands, it was important to create a funny and happy feeling, but without creating a visual disorder.” Talking about the product exhibition, a series of tables and display elements easy to move were custom-made. That way the intention was to offer Gnomo’s store the possibility to change the product exhibition at any time depending on the actual type of products on sale. As for every project all the elements were designed exclusively for Gnomo, with exception of the counter desk.

Gnomo创始人Álvaro Zarzuela y Esther Martín说道：“它不仅仅是一个售卖物品的商店，更是一个不断发生着新故事的、备俱创造性的空间。人们在这类分享故事与生活。每一件商品都有自己独特的故事，有时候是其品牌的历史故事，有时候是我们的生活故事，大部分故事还是来源于商品与客户的不解之缘。”
Álvaro Zarzuela y Esther Martín, founders of Gnomo: “In this space continuously reinvented, above selling design objects, stories are gifted. More than a store, for us Gnomo is a space to share experiences. All the objects we sell have their own history. Sometimes its the history of their brand, sometimes its the history we are living and most of the time it is a history told by our clients.”
