Aparentment is a space for creation and innovation, experimenting with materials with the goal to develop robust, lasting and timeless designs.
Aparentment collections feature contemporary and casual sophistication. Parts made of noble materials such as Carrara marble, wood and brass play with the concepts of style and uniqueness.
Josep Vila captures in his collections the creative discourse that motivates him as a professional. On the one hand, printing his aesthetic character in accessible designs with an artistic touch, playing with the metaphor & contradictions (like a Brique made of marble), transgress without losing the sophistication and looking for the opportunity to offer something different, working from design to production with local craftsmen and manufacturers.
Josep Vila Capdevila. Founder and Head Designer of Aparentment, he graduates in Industrial Design By Elisava University in 2001. He postgraduates in Photography in Elisava and 3D Design Engineering at UPC. His multiple interests lead him to get involved with advertising, fashion, photojournalism and even music.
In addition to his work under Aparentment, he was a teacher of Industrial Design at “Escola d’Art i Disseny de Terrassa” and won a LUX bronze award for ‘Best advertising photograph.
Marblelous collection is the first author collection of Aparentment. Launched in 2012 with te Brique and the marblelous mirror it is still growing. Marblelous is able to surprise and spark the imagination through beautiful elements. Simple designs made with lovely quality materials to recreate your own wonderland. This collection won a RED Spain Critic’s award for Best Collection in 2014, it was included in Yatzer’s “Best of Milan 2015” and it also was awarded with “Les Découvertes Maison & Objet – Paris January 2016”.
Very Wood is the sibling of Marblelous collection. Following the same concepts for style and uniqueness it uses noble woods for its designs.
In 2016 we will launch Iron-y collection, using materials such as iron, brass and copper, companions of the marble in the Marblelous collection.
