Since 1973, Sancal has been a company in all senses of the word: in its imagination, creation, development, innovation, manufacturing and quality service. Everything is made in Spain by a large team of 70 specialists in design, crafts, industrial production and project management. Nevertheless, when we think of Sancal, the word project springs to mind, because this enterprise is much more than just a simple firm. Economic benefit is the objective of any business with a long-term vision. Nevertheless, the development of fabulous creative potential – to transform the everyday; to transgress the boundaries of habitat through design - is also an essential aim for Sancal.
The Sancal project maintains a continuous flow of ideas and that is why it is an unfinished project, which retains the illusion and the nonconformist ethos of the first day; which, as a familiar company, desires the extension of its identity over time. Despite all our achievements, we have the impression that everything is to be done.
Frontiers among the different habitat scenarios are less defined, with spaces converted into areas for the flow of humanity with differing needs: offices where we practice pilates, restaurants where we write e-mails, cafés where we take naps, libraries where we watch movies, waiting rooms where we feed our babies, kitchens where we chat, lounges where we study, bedrooms where we play video games… Working and leisure places are an approximation of home and vice versa, in such a way that our lives flow through multiuse spaces which we share with other people.
After an extensive trajectory in the realization of projects, the need emerged to create products with the toughness required of furniture for collective use, whilst retaining careful consideration for the shapes, emotions and aesthetics of Sancal.
