ABOUT US/THE TEAM:
Ahsayane studio was founded by Marcial Ahsayane and Miriam Liebana, product designers from Spain. Both of them worked in Barcelona as creative professionals. It was there where they meet and start their own `creative trip´ together.
After their first steps as designers in Barcelona, they based the studio in Brussels in 2009. It was there when they become an international design agency, due their clients from Silicon Valley/ Australia/ Hong Kong/ Belgium/ UK to Spain. All those creative commissions provided them a chance of working in different fields such as: lighting, furniture, packaging and product design mainly.
In 2010 they both join a new `partner´: called ceramics. This new expertise helped them to improve some other facets of their creativity. Finally, this meant that, in 2012, they were featured at Interieur, Biennale of Kortrijk, as `one of the best participating objects´ in the Interieur Design Award, with the Dot Porcelain Table.
Alongside the creative studio, in 2013, Marcial and Miriam founded a company called Milcincuenta, a laboratory where to explore the creation of limited editions and numbered collections. Which started with an original porcelain jewellery collection made out of `Royal porcelain´.
Because the new requirements of run together Ahsayane Studio and Milcincuenta, they open a new office based in London in 2013. Where they actually established both offices in the same city.
