In Conversation With: Daniel Germani — Creative Director at Gandia Blasco


Born in Argentina yet raised by the world, the story of Daniel Germani is a tale of three continents. From his formative years in Latin America to his professional evolution in Europe and the United States, his style pays homage to the people and places he’s experienced along the way.

 

Deeply personal yet always stylish, his unique design language also has a way of bringing oxymoronic ideas together — be that the warmth of outdoor living in the Tropics or the industrial luxe aesthetic so beloved in Europe. Best known at Chaplins for his exciting Solanas collection with Gandia Blasco, we recently found some time for a quick (virtual) catch up…


 

Describe the Solanas collection for us in three words.

Sleek, sexy and timeless.

You’ve mentioned previously that Solanas pays homage to your father. How did you go about immortalizing him in this collection? What features remind you of him?

My dad was a man who was always ready to open the doors of his home to friends and family. He was a talented chef and host. He also had an extraordinary aesthetic sensibility and designed the outside space of his house in Solanas to accommodate his numerous guests and for the enjoyment of his three passions: nature, family and gastronomy.

Colour seems equally important. How did you choose the palettes?

I am attracted to metallic hues. I think they transition seamlessly from indoor to outdoor.

We love how modular the collection is. What was the starting point for you and how did the collection evolve into what it is?

I always try to design with the idea of the whole line in mind. The concept needs to be able to grow and expand.
