Apparatu – ceramics
As the son of a ceramist, Xavier Mañosa grew up surrounded by clay, potter’s wheels and kilns. After studying industrial design and graphic design he moved part-time to Berlin and opened his own ceramics studio ‘Apparatu’ in Barcelona. Today, the creative side of the business is based in Germany, while the production side is carried out in Barcelona. Apparatu takes a fresh approach to design, based entirely on using ceramics, and with value for process and craftsmanship.
