Contain is a design studio and manufacturer of handcrafted high-quality lighting made in sunny Mallorca and working worldwide.
Mauricio Obarrio and Juan Peralta started CONTAIN, their lighting and furniture design studio.
This collection is the result of the collaboration between their studio, local artisans and the industrial sector; where creativity and simplicity creates a unique synergy and generates a narrative between the materials used and the pieces created.
Their mission is to deliver artisan crafted, highly engineered, sophisticated yet simple lighting design solutions. The studio's inspiration is fuelled by an obsession with natural materials such as Brass, Glass, and Hardwoods along with a love for artisan craftsmanship.
The collections are hand made and made by order. Small irregularities in shape or surface could occur because they are inherent to the hand made process and should not be seen as flaws. Variations in color and size are available in the whole collection.
Mauricio Obarrio and Juan Peralta have always been fascinated by the craftsmanship and the interaction between craftsman and designer, they aim to promote a dialogue within (and beyond) the Mallorcan workers. They love to work with local workers, that’s why we use blown glass from Gordiola, a local glass factory with more than 300 years of history and experience
They work with recycled materials, as 3D printed technology with PLA (polylactic acid or polylactide), which is a thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources. Nowadays, PLA has the second highest consumption volume of any bioplastic in the world.
Because every customer and every project is different they like to customise the finishes, the type of the stone, the color of the structure, making every piece special and unique, designing new combinations for every project.
