Paco Camus´s work has been always multidisciplinary. From the comics, painted during the 80's to the present day have passed multiple stages, where have alternated and underhand different creative activities. The graphic design, illustration, interior design, ephemeral architecture, the design of lighting and furniture, have been collated with other purely artistic activities such as: sculpture, poetry, painting, photographic collage, performances, etc. All these experiences have given him the artistic and technical expertise necessary to face the greatest challenge of his career: to produce their own designs.

Born on 3 July 1962 in Barcelona, Joan Lao has been an international design icon for many years. His works are admired in Spain, NorthAmerica, the Middle East and Latin America. Difficult to categorise due to his ability to perform at different levels of design, JOAN LAO is above all a creator, working primarily in the conceptual sphere. He is part of a scarce elite of creators whose works always conserve their avant-garde classification by being as contemporary as they are timeless. A rare quality that comes from his vision of design as a way of embodying a concept. Joan Lao has always been faithful to this vision. He applies it to interior design and to architecture, designing pieces of furniture, lighting and other objects, as well as global interior design projects that go beyond the limits of normal decorative level to enter into a comprehensive creation of spaces whose pivotal point is balance and harmony.
