Ciszak Dalmas is a boutique studio based in Madrid, founded in 2009 by Alberto Gobbino Ciszak and Andrea Caruso Dalmas and working in interior architecture and product design.
The multidisciplinary team works passionately, intending to innovate, break the barriers and create disruptive concepts for small and big scale firms, materializing ideas to be touched, felt, and shared. The studio works across various disciplines, including architecture, interior, product, furniture design, and art direction, using a holistic and experimental approach, and exploring the interconnections between traditional craftsmanship and new technologies.
They have undertaken projects of diverse nature in collaboration with Aesop, Bershka, Bosa, Bitossi, Camper, Loewe, Malababa, Max&Co., Muroexe, Saffron, and Zara, among others. Side to the commercial works, their daily practice focuses on material experimentation and limited-edition design.
The duo is also the founder of La Clinica Design, a piece of contemporary furniture and object brand. They were awarded 2019 the First Prize for the Best Retail Design section in The New York Times Magazine.
They are associate professors at IE University and visiting HEAD Geneva, Elisava and IED Madrid in the academic field, holding lectures in an international framework, such as the Biennale di Architettura in Venice, Salone del Mobile in Milan, Experimenta Design in Lisbon and Design Ambassador in Hong Kong.
Alberto and Andrea, who met in Turin at a younger age, graduated from the Politecnico and completed the European Design Labs Master in Madrid. Before establishing their practice, they joined as designers Inga Sempè in Paris, Artemide in Milan, Pininfarina and BRH+ in Turin, collaborating on projects for LucePlan, Cappellini, Ligne Roset, Magis and Jacuzzi regarding the product, industrial, exhibit and interior design.
