 Born in Barcelona in 1944, Carles Riart studied at the city’s EINA School of Art and Design while training in Raimundo Giné s cabinetmaking workshop. He is considered a key designer on the Spanish scene, despite preferring to call himself a "furniture maker" since he has always focused his work on furniture. From a young age he showed a keen interest in design, opening, at just nineteen years of age, a shop for household objects and an interior design studio: Gris. Such was his success that, after seeing a surge in his interior design orders, he launched a second line of business, designing bars and galleries, among other commissions.

Carles Riart s many accolades include Spain s National Design Award (2011), the ADI-FAD Golden Delta (1970 and 1974), the European Top-Ten Award (Cologne, 1994). His work Penjador Ona was selected to form part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Santa & Cole has put together a book outlining Riart s career, including images of his most representative pieces, from design icons to his own illustrations.
