Bodegon Cabinet is an interdisciplinary firm based in Barcelona, and focused on architecture, interior and furniture design. The name of the studio is the Spanish translation of Still Life. It comes from the idea of natural or handmade objects arranged in a given space using design, colors and lighting to produce an effect of harmony, comfort and well-being. This is Bodegon Cabinet’s aim, to design still lifes in all of its projects creating bespoke houses, hotels, restaurants or furniture that enrich human experience. Bodegon Cabinet is a studio directed by two architects and, for this reason, our way of approaching each work field follows precisely the same method. Architecture becomes the basis and from that point onwards the objective is to enjoy all the production processes with the conviction that every format’s possibilities are endless.
