Antoni de Moragas Gallissà was born in Barcelona, where he, went on to study and work as an architect at a time when Spain was lagging behind other Western countries both intellectually and industrially. In 1949 he founded Club 49, a group interested in establishing links with the European and American avant-garde of the time.

Moragas accepted the tenets of Rationalism, adding a personal warmth to the relationship between purpose and form. Today, his furniture pieces are considered design classics, designed for industrialised production, even though they were initially handcrafted in limited series. "Craftsmanship has died to make way for Design (...) The artisan used his instinct to guide his work, while the industrial designer uses reason to guide his plans," he wrote in his journals from 1961.

Santa & Cole overviews the basic premises of Moragas’s thinking in a book bearing his name, which recaps his career. Antoni de Moragas is a figure of unquestionable importance in the development of 20th century Catalan architecture, urban planning, and design.
