New Spanish Design (Thames and Hudson & Rizzoli, 1991) by Guy Julier analyses the 1980s design boom in furniture, interiors, public spaces, graphics, product design etc.
During the dictatura of General Franco, designers formed a radical avant-garde in the face of national economic and cultural isolation. Taking their cue from international sources, and in particular from Italy, they developed their own design colleges, institutions and critical positions. Today. Sapin is a nation of opportunities, literally engaged in redesigning a whole country; once heavily reliant on foreign sources, its design is now its own movement. Formerly seen as unnecessary to the economy, it is now regarded as a torchbearer of the nation’s resurgence.
