Xavi Manosa : Xavi is a Potter 2.0

Mobilia presents Xavi Manosa: Xavi is a Potter 2.0. 

Xavier Mañosa founded his studio Apparatu just five years ago and, in that short space of time, he has become one of the most up and coming ceramicists of his generation. When he took that step, he was living in Berlin. Perhaps that distance helped him to finally dedicate himself to what he had seen his parents doing during his childhood and which he had rejected, as an act of defiance, during his training as an industrial designer. In his case, the most fascinating part is probably that it is a combination of the two – his perspective from a distance and his eagerness to experiment linked to his knowledge of his trade, drawn from his home background.

Until 2009, Mañosa had his creative base in Berlin, from where he returned to the family workshop, located in an old industrial estate in Barcelona, where ceramic products for the building industry used to be produced. Nowadays, it is actually a focal point for antiques, which gives it a most inspiring atmosphere.

What fundamentally distinguishes Mañosa as a modern-day ceramicist is his boldness when it comes to combining different materials and to exploring new forms of expression. 

Pieces by Apparatu have been exhibited at contemporary design fairs and festivals in London, Frankfurt, Saint- Étienne, Tokyo, New York, México and Stockholm, Australia, as well as in Madrid and Barcelona.

Xavi Manosa: Xavi is a Potter 2.0 is a short discussion on what Xavi has been doing since his visit last year, his latest collections for some of the world's greatest brands, the launch of his Fang collection at the Milan Furniture fair 2015 and more.
