Juanny Barceló: designing relationships through objects
Juanny is a designer of Cuban origin, resident in Italy, who dares to work with multiple design disciplines, not just product design. Juanny has worked in graphic design, motion design and 3D modeling. The designer has extensive experience in the world of design, which he began while still studying graphic and product design at the Higher Institute for Artistic Industries in Faenza, Italy.
Juanny is one of those designers who seeks to tell a story in every object or product he designs. Their designs transmit joy without forgetting the function, the form and the details that make them special. He is a designer aware of the importance of knowing the client, company or individual for whom he designs the object, in order to understand what problem he needs to solve with the product, connect with it and establish a lasting relationship. The Italian designer seeks inspiration from the people he works with on a daily basis, as he believes that each of us can bring a different point of view that enriches the design.

Pablo Pastor: from marketing manager to vocation maker
Pablo Pastor’s story is that of a craftsman of vocation, who decides to leave behind his time as a marketing manager and enter the world of craftsmanship and design, which he loves so much. Pablo establishes himself as a maker in Alcoy (Alicante, Spain) with his workshop The Egg Company, where he carries out cutting and machining work with CNC and laser milling machines. Now, with his consolidated workshop he decides to join Faberin to continue doing what he likes best: creating high quality objects with different functionalities for everyday life.
The high quality of the manufacturing process is one of Pablo’s hallmarks, which is that knows how to transfer in each job he does the passion he feels for the objects and products he makes. Without a doubt, Pablo is an example of an involved and committed maker who works to obtain exclusive handcrafted pieces with a quality finish.

Creating unique pieces: Joe, Trail and Hexagons
The union of these two great creative minds comes from the hand of Faberin, when
Vicente Cánovas, Faberin’s CEO, visited Pablo Pastor’s workshop to get to know him first-hand and to introduce him to Juanny Barceló’s designs,’Joe’ spaghetti meter, ‘Recursive Hexagons’ tablemat, and’Trail Lapdesk’ laptop stand. The visit was a great success and together they were able to share the details of the production process of the products and to share the ideas of the designer, Juanny Barceló with the maker. It was the starting point that established a professional and creative relationship between Juanny Barceló, designer in charge of creating the products, and Pablo Pastor, responsible for making them a reality and turning them into products for sale at Faberin.
The union of Pablo and Juanny has allowed the sale of the Joe spaghetti meter, inspired by the classic Italian design: Joe Colombo’s’Tube Chair’; the Recursive Hexagons table mat, inspired by the Droste Effect, a design resource widely used by Juanny and Trail, a laptop stand that will add personality to your workspace. Handcrafted products with a meticulous aesthetic, a distinctive feature of all the products you will find in Faberin.
