[en] Júlia Brunet is a design studio that emerged from the talent and creativity of Mireia Torruella and Irene Crespo. With a passion for the world of design in all its facets, they start with the idea that every interior tells its own story. They take care of giving shape and soul to spaces, furniture and accessories to wherever this story takes place which is, ultimately, people’s lives.
To enjoy the surroundings of projects by Júlia Brunet, whether they are houses, hotels, restaurants or commercial premises means entering a world of warmth and well-being tailor-made for every customer. The surroundings convey freshness and personality. They are unique and pleasant and above all comfortable. They create them so that people feel at ease.
From the initial concept until the final implementation, they take care of all the details of the project. The distribution of space is just as important as the choice of colour of the walls or deciding what type of handles you will use. This final part of the design and implementation is exactly what we have been talking about with Mireia Torruella when finishing a photo shoot of a house equipped with our products.
How important are knobs and handles within your projects?
Handles are a very important element for us which are in fact the conclusion to a project as we think about everything right up until the last detail. When we choose them we are very much aware of their positioning. It is essential to analyse the surroundings in which they will be fitted and just how they will be used as all this will determine their shape and finish.
When it comes to choosing knobs and handles, which material seems the most adequate?
We don’t have a favourite material, it all depends exactly where they will be installed and who and how they will be used. A handle for a cupboard in an urban residence, which could well be metallic, isn’t the same as a handle for a cupboard in a Country Spa which may be wooden or with an antique brass look.
And do you have a favourite shape?
It depends on the height, the door, the drawer, the office, whether the area is big or small…there are so many factors.
Without closing off any other options, black is our preferred colour, black handles always work really well.
Which is your favourite handle from the knobs and handles at Viefe®?
There are so many.., but if we have to choose one which we really like then it would be Nick due to its versatility and the simplicity of its design to adapt to any particular space, the result is really pleasing.
Lastly Mireia, which is your favourite room in the house?
The bedroom. I really love rooms where you can rest, where there is silence and you are with whoever you really want to be with. In my opinion it’s the most intimate and personal space in the house.
