Blai Puig awakens emotions in the Cubiñá showroom


The family enterprise Cubiñá is presenting a renewed image in its showroom for home furniture and lighting, contract, office, outdoors and accessories, located in the emblematic modernist building Casa Thomas in the heart of Barcelona’s Ensanche district.

The reforms resulted from a collaboration with Blai Puig, the renowned window display designer, interior decorator and designer of ephemeral spaces, and consists of creating settings that seek to awaken emotions in visitors. Cubiñá features a space exclusively devoted to lighting and another one to contract, with a broad variety of chairs, tables and stools so that architects and interior decorators can find all kinds of solutions for their projects. It also has a 200-m2 space exclusively dedicated to the Italian brand Molteni.

The accessories section has also been enlarged, with “decorative and useful objects that bring greater realism to the settings while allowing consumers to create their own ambiences, with complements with which to establish a relationship, a dialogue; in other words, objects that evoke sensations”, explains Blai Puig, who emphasises that his aim is to transform Cubiñá into a touchstone in Barcelona.

Blai boasts a professional career spanning more than five decades, with highlights in interior design projects and product presentations for the stores of prominent cultural facilities (Madrid’s Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, La Pedrera, the Miró Foundation, the Macba and Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu opera house, among others). Other noteworthy projects by this important master are the interior design and product selection of the shops in Port Aventura, Pilma and Vinçon stores, stand design and participation in trade shows such as Expohogar and advisory services for design workshops such as the CIRE project for socio-occupational reintegration in penitentiaries.

One sentence stands out from our interview with him: “I came into the world to arrange and visually explain”.
