Pablo Limón Design Office has designed the new studio – shop of innovative jeweler Andrés Gallardo in Madrid.

The heart of the project is to highlight ANDRESGALLARDO’s jewelry within the space. The entire space was conceived with this in mind. A set of modular shelves and drawers made of different materials, such as Carrara marble and beechwood, help create the area where the jewelry is displayed.


The pieces are held in place by custom-made iron fittings that blend in with the wall.  They allow the shelves to be changed easily for new seasons in which different material is needed to feature the new jewelry.  The shelves are lit with ceramic lamps designed ad hoc with the same intention of emphasizing the product and blending in with the setting.


Two symmetrical beechwood tables with different drawers and a mirror with inlay made of various types of wood were also designed, using a very simple design language to decorate the space with the other vintage furniture pieces custom-selected for the store, such as the hexagonal display cabinet that replicates the shape of the interior courtyard where the studio-shop is located.


The design was completed with a sculpture by artist Kiko Pérez that was created exclusively for the new studio-shop with a formalistic approach in connection with the ANDRESGALLARDO pieces and the interior design by Pablo Limón Design Office.
