La Bóbila Not a furniture factory. La Bóbila is not a restaurant. La Bóbila is not an NGO. It's all that together and much more. A few years ago Juan Granada y Miriam Cuatrecasas They decided to reuse an old brick factory and turn it into a multi-space in which there is room for design, solidarity, ecology and fair trade.
The creation process follows the following scheme: designs They are created in Corça (town where they are) and sent to Southeast Asian countries and Morocco where they are built by hand. The purpose is to help small artisans and family clans of the third world through trade as a work tool.
La material quality It is an essential requirement, the furniture must be made with certified woods that comply with the ecological program. Once manufactured, they return to the facilities of La Bóbila where they are given the final touch-up for their commercialization.
The last step of this process, the sale, has solidary purposes. The income of some products is allocated to scholarship programs for the foundation We are one (fight against the sexual exploitation of Thai girls) and in summer an auction of antiques and works of art is organized to extend the aid. All this process causes each piece of furniture to be unique, unique and with a great story to tell.
Nobody can be indifferent when entering the world of La Bóbila. 5000 m2 of space in which East and West are mixed, past and present, combinations that result in a collection with magic in which each piece has its own personality. As a finishing touch to this space visitors can go for Chef Christian Sorensen, a restaurant located in the same factory that is located in the greenhouse and that combines Japanese and Mediterranean cuisine in their menus.
We are really excited about this initiative and from here we give congratulations to those who one day thought that design can serve much more than to decorate.
