Gabriella Asztalos was born in Budapest, grew up and studied in several countries across Western Europe. Before her design studies, Gabriella was a professional classical ballet dancer. This experience gave her the advantage of knowing exactly how to express emotions, feelings or state of mind through body forms, shapes and movements.

Her first, multi-award winning design, the “Hug Chair” also emerged from an expressive human movement – the “Hug”.

With this design Gabriella won the ICFF New York Design Award and the IFFS International Furniture Design Award Singapore. These awards also brought great interest in her following designs.

With her next design, the “Floating Garden”, she won another international award, the A-Design Award.

Gabriella founded her design studio in 2010, which is based in Barcelona with global exposure and costumers worldwide.
