Bio
When organizing the files for a book, designer Ricardo van Steen has collected more than 30 furniture design creations throughout his career, whether as an art director, set designer or architect. Encouraged by the realization of the production, he started a process of updating all those ideas to the standards and paradigms of the current time. After 40 years of work with brands and publications design, the artist creates a new work area in his studio, dedicated to furniture design. This work, in collaboration with other artists, resulted in Mobilia TEMPO.
