Luis Eslava

Coordinator of the Product Area of the Degree in Design and Director of the Master in Design for Future Products

Luis Eslava combines his professional practice with his position at Elisava as Head of Product Design on University Degree as well as Tutor on some of the Masters and Postgraduates programs. He centers his research and development in the creative process, the materiality of the objects, and in the bridge of craftsmanship with industrial processes. He approaches design from a comprehensive point of view. For him “a designer must be able to propose a wide range of solutions”. “Rethink daily life”. This is the reason why their studio heads for global projects, while they participate in all productive stages.
