Maurici is a pioneer in his field, founder and first president of APDI Spain Association and collaborator with the UPC Barcelona to set the academic guidelines for its first postgraduate in lighting design. He is always searching for innovative creations that contribute to the international discourse designing with light. His designs are essential, functional and poetical. They seek to bring the beauty of light to people. In his works everything is in balance, and every detail has been thought out to make you smile, to make you feel.
Artec Studio is a transdisciplinary workshop that designs with light through a holistic approach to generate identity and wellbeing. We conceive light as the most powerful element to tell stories that connect with people, seeking to awaken positive emotions and to inspire the sense of beauty in their own perception, with others and the shared ambience. All this, through a particular way of looking at life, with the intention to positively interfere with what is assumed, as a proposal to make us think. Searching for the unexpected, across any possible slit to shape light, to create experiences. Catalyzing the essential through a process of programmatic alchemy that results in a project that moves and encourages perceptions, smiles… magic.
