French-born Simone & Spanish-born Marcel set up their lighting and homeware company - Simone & Marcel - in Marcel's native Spain.
Simone & Marcel place a high emphasis on carefully sourcing the best, high quality materials : alabaster, ceramics, marble, wood. They love to use unexpected associations, which highlight the beauty of the natural, organic materials sourced.
The couple design all the piece themselves. They develop and test all their ideas in their workshop, an abandoned agricultural warehouse that they have transformed into their headquarters, in the La Mancha province of Spain. Marcel's background as a lighting engineer and Simone's in supply chain management has given them the perfect starting point for the tasks involved in creating lights - the selection of materials, the choice of manufacturing processes...
Each piece is then made by highly skilled local artisans.
Simone & Marcel pride themselves on keeping the design and manufacturing processes in the same place, which ensures that the lights are made to the highest quality.
