What is disability?
What is normal?
With this two questions starts Purin´s Project.
The RAE said´s disability is the quality of a disable and quality is the way of being of something or somebody.
Normal is a thing that adjusts itself to certain rules.
Over the years, disability has always been look at as something negative , nowadays disability is more accepted in society but there are still some prejudices
Purin´s project was born to generate reflexions with different works made with or by people with some kind of disability and focused into the design world.
Chapter 1 is a colaboration with "Fundación Síndrome de Down de Madrid" an organization in charge of integrate people with different disabilities into the society, most of them with down syndrome, one of its objectives is to make them more independent and with a better quality of life.
In this project the participants make their own interpretation of the houseware objects, the process is really important because in it different points of view are exchanged and it generates a discussion, why the objects have to be this way and not in a different one?
The result are unique pieces with their own languaje.

Laines is a project that was born at the Wood Master Class organized by Fundesarte and U´luv center of folk arts of Slovakia.
At the Master Class craftsmen and designers of Spain, Ireland and France participated and exchanged different points of view and creation methods.
While designers often wonder what they want to do without thinking whether their design is viable or not, craftsmen think about the processes they know without trying to push their boundaries. The mix of these two ways of thinking made the Master Class challenging for designers as they had to get involved in the production and viability and at the same time craftsmen had to consider design and aesthetics.
Laines is an experiment that mixes two paradigms to create a product that is functional and can be produced in a artesanal way by the woodturning technique.
