Joan Gaspar starts his industrial design education in the escuela de Artes y Oficios in Barcelona.
At 22 he starts his professional career working in 1988 at the company Vapor S.A., founded by Lluís Porqueras and Jaume Vaquero in 1979 to produce objects clearly rational and minimalist.
From 1992 he colaborates with different companies
to create new lines of products: Mery, Industrias Conesa, Manufacturas Rocal, Santa & Cole, B-Lux, Sellex y DaisaluxIn 1996 he starts a fruitful and close relationship with the company Marset Iluminación to develop new products and in which he will become a creative director, post that he holds presently.
For Joan Gaspar the colaboration between the designer and the producer is essential to create quality products. “The fact that a product is good or not so good depends greatly on the designer and
the company that launches it to the market, especially on how it is done, on how it is explained and how it is promoted. Of these hows I would highlight ‘how it is produced’”, states Joan Gaspar.Two of his products, the Atlas lamp (2001) and the neón the Luz (2005) have been awarded with the Delta de Plata Awards.
He has been awarded also among other with the primer premio en el Concurso del Mueble de la Comunidad Castilla la Mancha first position in the Concurso del Mueble de la Comunidad Castilla la Mancha and on the Concurso Internacional de la
Feria del Mueble de Valencia
