Born in Granada, Andalusia, designer and architect Nestor Campos left his native Spain to study design and architecture in Italy, Germany and Sweden. After several years of working for architectural practices, Campos completed a post-graduate degree in industrial design at Lund University, subsequently establishing his own studio in 2014.
Campos’ work is inspired by a wide variety of cultural traditions and the diverse landscapes found in the countries he has lived in. These references add elements of surprise to Campos’ work, and often spark aesthetics inspired by natural forms, understated beauty and principles of minimalism. These inspirations come together spectacularly in the Drift candleholder.
