Based in: Madrid
U-ak is a Spanish design studio based in Madrid. Founded in 2011 by Marta Pascual. We believe in design as a social, sustainable and contemporary transformer, to create pieces that go beyond aesthetic and functional VALUE
Since 2016 we work in collaboration with textile workshops of social reintegration, because we firmly believe in the power of design as a social transformer, not only as a formula for social growth for the workers of these projects, but as a contribution of an extra VALUE to the pieces themselves by the meticulous and exquisite work behind each of the pieces.
The constant search for sustainable materials has also been key in all phases of their study, working with 100% wool felts, natural cottons and manufacturing already in the latest collections with a biodegradable material, PLA of vegetable origin through 3D printing.
The objective of U-ak is not only to bring VALUE to the pieces through its manual and almost handmade manufacturing processes, but to bring an avant-garde and contemporary design through the study and research of shapes, colors and materials, especially the circular and geometric shapes that are recognized in each of the pieces. During the studio's career, its pieces have been selected for several exhibitions in Madrid and they have also participated in international trade fairs and their pieces are sold in specialized design stores in Madrid and Spain.
