Mauricio Obarrio and Juan Peralta live in Mallorca and have created their lighting and furniture design studio Contain. Their mission is to provide handcrafted, highly technical, sophisticated yet simple lighting design solutions. Their studio's inspiration is fuelled by an obsession with natural materials such as alabaster, brass, glass and hardwoods, as well as a love of craft.
The aim is to revalue local materials by creating products that emphasise materiality and simplicity of form. They aim to promote a dialogue within and beyond Mallorcan workers, they believe in the power of local materials mixed with design and technology.
Their collections are handmade and made to order. Small irregularities in shape or surface may occur as they are inherent to the handmade process and should not be considered as defects.
Because each client and each project is different, they like to customize the finishes, the type of stone, the colour of the structure, making each piece special and unique, designing new combinations for each project.
