Eli Gutiérrez is a cosmopolitan designer, born in Valencia, Spain. After completing her studies in her home city, she moved to London to study a Master’s in Product Design at the Royal College of Art. This step helped her to shape a clear and elegant vision for her own design language, and to hone a keen sense of materials, colours, and textures. Subsequent to this experience, Eli lived in Milan and Paris, where she collaborated with Patricia Urquiola, Philippe Starck, and India Mahdavi.
In 2016, Eli founded her own multidisciplinary design studio between Paris and Valencia. She defines her cosmopolitan and cross-cultural approach as that of a ‘World Citizen’: an explorer attentive to detail, and a traveller with a contemporary and incisive view on remodelling the traditional codes of our environment. Eli’s designs feature unique, embedded stories, and are often expressed with an eloquent and fresh elegance.
