Established in 2003, Nahtrang Design Studio was founded by Spanish industrial designers Daniel Vila and Ester Pujol. Daniel is from Sant Quirze Safaja, and Ester is from Sabadell. Both were educated at Escola Massana in Barcelona. The duo’s practice was named after the city in Vietnam that inspired their work together.
Over the past decade and a half, Nahtrang Studio has built an impressive list of international clients, including Bacardi, Estiluz, Corradi, Escofet, and many more. In 2012, the studio received the Silver Delta Award for their Pile outdoor lamp. Their products have appeared in various publications such as Experimenta, Creativity Guide, Casa Viva, ON Diseño, Diseño Interior, and Incubator Berlin.
In addition to product design, Daniel and Ester are also educators. They have lectured at several Spanish universities, including Escola Massana, the EINA School of Art and Design, and Elisava.
