Claudia & Harry Washington
Claudia & Harry Washington is a furniture and space design studio founded by Salvadoran couple Claudia Vasquez Washington and Harry Washington. Claudia and Harry met in 2001 while earning their degree in interior architecture at Dr. Jose Matías Delgado University in El Salvador. In 2004, they expanded their studies in furniture design at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan. After their return back to El Salvador, they started experimenting with industrial aesthetics through the use of artisan techniques and local manual labor. As a result, they developed their own unique process, nourished mostly by a profound passion to maximize the limited resources available to them. Their creative process is grounded in their own philosophy that design is meant to connect people to their own human nature and to the essence that makes them authentically happy.
