Booklet: Speed Thinking: 1 object, 25 projects.


After developing the workshop “Speed Thinking: 1 object, 25 projects” and 4 years implementing it in different Design Universities, we have designed a small edition to showcase the outcome.

The book is a recopilation of some of the works developed at the workshop by students of LUCA School of Arts during the International Workshop Week 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. It is intended to be a showcase of the range of creative outcomes that students may achieve when given freedom to explore new possibilities.

Arch finishes and materials


We truly believe that the process behind creation and craftsmanship reflect in the final product. This is why we work closely with local manufacturers and fellow creators.

These are some options of the finishes available for the Arch mirror collection.
Owing to the distinctive origins of the raw material it is made of, each piece of Arch is different and special.


Please email hola@colapsostudio.com to place your order and enquire about materials, sizes and availability.

The New Mediterranean


Our project Studio & Apartment has been published at the Gestalten book:
The New Mediterranean. Homes and interiors under the southermn sun.
Introducing the designers and architects who are leading the way, while investigating the traditional craftsmanship at the heart of this movement. The New Mediterranean shows you how to bring this sumptuous, sun-drenched minimalism into your own home.

“A welcoming, new, down-to-earth modernism is gaining momentum, from California to Morocco, Portugal to Mexico. This direction in interiors combines Mediterranean folkloric influences with a contemporary aesthetic—taking cues from sunny landscapes to embrace warmth, light, and organic elements. The New Mediterranean showcases inspiring residences and vacation homes around the world that combine rustic, earthy tones with colorful fabrics, ceramics, rattan furniture, and Berber carpets which are offset by whitewashed walls, concrete, brick, terracotta tiles, and glass.”
