Born in Spain in 1980 and now based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, Carbonell works alongside his team of designers and artists in an open warehouse. He graduated in 2003 from Cardenal Herrera University in Spain and went on to study at the Design Academy Eindhoven. Upon graduating, he created collections such as Evolution in 2009, which won him a nomination for Beazley Design of the Year from the Design Museum in London.
In 2010, a year after being named a Designer of the Future at Design Miami/Basel, he presented This Identity, redefining his current style of organic forms and rough and colorful textures. His pieces are part of private collections and museums around the world.
Exhibited at Design Miami/ 2023 In the Light Mesh Collection, a sculptural collection by Spanish artist Nacho Carbonell, he undertook great research to source materials and shapes that play with differences and similarities to create an overarching feeling. Nacho’s One-Seater Concrete Tree showcases one big armchair, from which one large metal branch grows with a metal mesh cork presenting as the crown of a tree. This unique structure was inspired by the multitude of forms that trees grow, mirroring the unique growing form of a real living tree.
