The proposal at that time was a risky one: contemporary design in a still very traditional industry. But the company tried to emphasize the expression of a new and personal language through good design, and the combination ended up triumphant. GANDIABLASCO’s textile collections were an unprecedented success.
José kept experimenting until the mid-90s, when GANDIABLASCO debuted –by surprise- in the field of outdoor furniture, with a proposal that stunned everyone and changed the course of the company. The outdoor collections kept coming, and with them, success. The company made a name for itself in the world of outdoor furniture, but GANDIABLASCO did not forget its beginnings, and rugs remained an important part of the catalog.
In 2004, Jose starts collaborating with Mapi Millet. They are old friends with similar taste and sensitivity. Along with the rest of the team, they begin shaping this new brand, GAN, that will group together all of GANDIABLASCO’s textile productions. Under Mapi’s direction, GAN is born as the brand it is today: an interior design concept based around handmade objects, with its own identity, and at the same time very close to GANDIABLASCO, since both share a tireless curiosity to explore new techniques and designs.
