Carlos Tíscar (1964) holds a degree in industrial design from the School of Applied Arts in Valencia, majoring in industrial design. He is also a graduate of the Scuola Politecnica di Design di Milano. His professional career started in 1987 as a member of the industrial design group Factoría and, later on, as a partner of the consulting firm Gesto Design Management, in 1991.
In 1993, he founded his own studio, Tíscar Design, and his field of expertise is home, office and contract furniture, as well as urban furniture and homeware.
He’s also the former vice-president of the ADCV (the Designers of the Valencian Community Association)
He has exhibited his work in Bologna, Florence, Milan, Tokyo, Mexico, Chicago, Istanbul and Frankfurt, where he recently won a German Design Award in the Excellent Product Design Furniture category for his multi-tasking concept bed, called Nook, which is being produced by the Valencian furniture company JJP.
The bed resembles one of those Japanese hotel rooms, with everything incorporated, including LED lighting, video screen, coat pegs, bicycle, and, according to the photo, a bottle of wine, which seems very civilised to me and is on my Christmas present listr already; if a bed comes with it then that’s a bonus.
