Theresa Casey Finds Inspiration in Art and Architecture in Spain

News, Top Life

Theresa Casey is the lone Canadian influence in this year’s class of Trendspotters, and as such she brings a love of handcrafted pieces (across cultures) that is so integral to the rich design history of her home market. It was with this love of detail that she traveled to Spain for our recent visit to Barcelona and Cosentino Headquarters in Almeria.

She became inspired while looking at the way that architectural and art played together in Barcelona, citing the mosaics of Antonio Gaudi at Parc Guell as a major trend she took into the R&D process at Cosentino.

Theresa found that melding her unique perspective with that of the other 5 Trendspotters yielded satisfying results that none of them could have achieved alone, stating:

“I learned that in the right environment 6 divergent points of views can come together to create a unique end result. The day at the factory working with the Trendspotters, developing ideas, resulted in very striking products.”
