A Studio Visit with ... Luis Eslava
by sabine7 / October 25, 2010


As we spend most of our time working, we have a natural curiosity about other people's workspaces, especially when the work and the people are creative.



Luis Eslava's Valencia design studio is no exception; chock full of books, prototypes, inspiration, food, drink and fun, this studio is a palpable example of contained creativity.
