Barcelona Visual: artistic interpretation by Mariadiamantes

Mariadiamantes is a studio from Barcelona founded by Clara Mercader, who is the author of Barcelona Visual.

The compilation of Barcelona’s icons, reinterpreted in a plastic and colourful way, has 50 images which represent the city: from its most famous buildings and transportations, to gastronomy or daily objects related to Mediterranean way of life.

For instance, Canaletes Fountain in the Ramblas can be found, or the distinctive black and yellow taxi. Also Barcelona chair designed by Mies van der Rohe for the Universal Expo 1929 is included…

… And objects such as Marquina oil and vinegar container or Copenhagen ashtray by André Ricard, both classic design icons from Barcelona edited by mobles 114.

At Mariadiamantes web you can find the illustrations and the book, and also a collection of postcards, to send and/or receive the best of Barcelona. Highly recommended.
