Born in a small fisherman´s village of Málaga, Jorge Penades originally studied interior design in Barcelona. He later graduated from Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) in Madrid with a Master´s degree in experimental design and conceptual thinking.
Jorge cultivates a dissident approach to the contemporary notion of design. He audits heterodox ideas in order to generate new opportunities for different companies, institutions or organizations which often manifest in new materials, objects, written pieces, one-off commissions or architectural experiences.
His work has been legitimized by different museums, galleries and design venues including Vitra Design Museum (Weil am Rhein), National Museum Design (Stockholm), Museu del Disseny (Barcelona), The Aram Gallery (London), Villa Noailles (Hyères), Rossana Orlandi (Milan), Machado-Muñoz (Madrid) or at London, Milan, Stockholm, Lima, Berlin, Madrid, Prague, Bratislava, Zagreb, Lodz and Dutch Design Week.
