Congo Studio, born in Barcelona in late 2013, is an innovative, contemporary project which combines photography, calligraphy, and typography to create visual narratives inspired by a quest for freedom. The common themes of nature, poetry, geometry, minimalism, and abstraction are all found in the brand’s products.
Founded by the artístic director, Laia Blesa, Congo Studio was set up with the intention of hatching original ideas and seeing them through to the finished product, without deadlines or haste. And what started as an excuse to experiment mixing graphic design, art, and interior design, has slowly evolved into a brand with international aspirations.
The Congo Studio prints present evocative black and white photography, often that of Congo Studio’s go to the photographer, Salva López. The impacting images are framed with metallic details and exude simple yet direct messages. Each piece is produced using handicraft techniques to give unique finishing touches.
All Congo Studio products are designed and made in Barcelona with a loving care for detail and using high-quality products only.
