Ala ZUREIKAT, ASTET Studio, Spain
For Jordanian designer Ala Zureikat and Oscar Engroba, co-founders of Barcelona-Based Astet Studio, great design is more than skin deep; especially in a post-pandemic world, for them, design has to have purpose and empathy, and yes, that fantastical element of escapism.

Their portfolio features a wide range of projects with a special focus on hospitality.
