Santa & Cole

Santa & Cole, a small, independent, and globally operating design company from Belloch (Barcelona, Spain), has been active in ‘editing’ design products since 1985. This entails adapting objects for general use, similar to what a book publisher does with stories. With contributions from over eighty designers, such as Antoni Arola, Miguel Milá, André Ricard, and Ilmari Tapiovaara, their rich catalog includes a diverse range of furniture and lighting products.

The mission of Santa & Cole is to build, protect, and disseminate knowledge through design objects of recognizable quality that enrich people’s lives, at home or in shared spaces. Their philosophy is more modern than futuristic, with a preference for silence over noise.

Santa & Cole focuses not on the current market, but on the future one; not just on Barcelona, but on the world; not on trends, but on history. Founded in 1985 by Nina Masó, Javier Nieto Santa, and Gabriel Ordeig Cole, in a time of change in Spain, the company began by making exceptional lamps for famous bars in Barcelona, which soon led to commissions to light both residential and public spaces. Santa & Cole’s designs are characterized by the use of natural materials and the pursuit of light that enhances our quality of life day and night and highlights the beauty of objects, shadows, and people.

Talking Objects is the exclusive agent for Santa & Cole in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg.
