José A. Martínez Lapeña

1941

Architect, designer and ETSAB lecturer, the career of José Antonio Martínez Lapeña is closely linked to Santa & Cole, whose catalogue offers many of the products that he has developed together with Elías Torres, who he has shared a studio with since 1968.

Together, they have been authors of elements such as the Pal·li bus shelter (ADI-FAD Silver Delta Award 1988), the first element in a new conception of urban furniture which would regenerate the city of Barcelona, and the Lampelunas street lamp (ADI-FAD Golden Delta Award 1986) edited by Urbidermis.
