Plutarco is a design office located in Madrid founded by Ana Arana and Enrique Ventosa in 2015. We design architecture and interiors, branding and identities, installations, exhibitions and products.
What we do
We are flexible and enjoy working with new and different techniques. The combination of our mutual architectural background with art, food and design - our passions - provides a whole spectrum of custom-made projects with refreshing aesthetics and concepts. We like taking risks and avoiding to use the same solution twice. By the way, we really like color and having a direct working relationship with our clients, so nothing is lost in translation.
Our work has been exhibited in Milan, Amsterdam, New York and in the Venice and Oslo Architecture Biennale. We have collaborated with brands like Campari and have been featured in Architectural Digest, Wallpaper, Milk Decoration, Frame or Icon Design among others.
