The Huarte family’s efforts to modernise Spanish society in several industrial and art fields led to one of their greatest and most notable impulses embodied in its modern furniture business, H Muebles. Established in 1958, H Muebles brought together the interests of distinguished architects, designers and artists who put all their creativity at the service of “furniture art”, created as an integral part of modern architecture.
In 1956, this business patented a building element from which one could fit modules, reminiscent of an Erector set, to make a simple stool or an entire assembly. This exhibition aims to bring back the modern furniture created by H Muebles, from the late 50s until the 70s, and show the industrial, artistic and architectural background where it acquired its true status as a cultural project.
The organisers of this exhibition will give a talk about it at MadridDesignPRO.
