Founded by Damaris Bilbao from Paris and Marc Navarro from Barcelona in 2007, Damaris & Marc is a design studio that started out self-generative in managing both the creative process and production of their works. They had to expand quickly in their collaborative efforts as they gained traction in the industry. In 2008 they were selected to exhibit at the Maison & Objet fair in Paris. That same year they began collaborating with the company EIG, the representative of Cradle2Cradle in Spain, on a range of ecological furniture which was presented at Barcelona Design Week. The duo continued to gain recognition as a range of exhibitions followed in both Spain and France (Côté Sud, Casa Decor, Fundation Palo Alto...). In 2011, the studio won an Aide à Projet VIA for its Wabi-Sabi shelf, which was presented in Milan that same year.
