Born in Barcelona in 1941, Oscar Tusquets Blanca, usually presents himself publicly as an architect by training, a designer by adaptation, a painter by vocation and a writer through the desire to make friends. He graduated as an architect in 1965 from Barcelona’s Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura and was a member of Studi Per. He began his work as a designer of furniture and objects with BD in 1972 and won the Spanish National Design Award. A number of his pieces appear in the collections of such major museums as the MoMA in New York and the Centre George Pompidou in Paris.
