Water, origin of life and universal formula.
Formula adopted by Joaquim Ruiz Millet and Ana Planella in 1989 to adapt a place where the flux of creative energy in Barcelona converge for almost three decades.
Gallery H2O opened its doors with a drawing exhibition of Ben van Berkel’s architectural projects.
In 1991 the gallery started the edition of historical design objects and rediscovered the furniture designed in 1955 by the architect F.J. Barba Corsini for “La Pedrera” by Gaudí. The collection was soon extended with new objects absolutely linked to the gallery activity. Among them, the “H 2 O” chair, the “Flamp” lamp or the children’s game “Autoband” by Martí Guixé.
In 1995 the gallery started a publishing project for literary texts with “Les Idiotes” collection.
Gallery H2O organizes architecture, design, photography and contemporary art exhibitions.
