Josep Maria Massana was a pioneer of industrial design along with Josep Maria Tremoleda, who he studied with on the first industrial design course offered at Massana design school (1965-1969). In 1968 he created Equip de Disseny with J.M. Tremoleda, F. Miravitlles and J. Doménec. Five years later, together with Mariano Ferrer and Tremoleda, he became an editor and co-founder of Mobles 114, a furniture store and interior design studio that also promoted the work of designers such as Carles Riart, at a time of considerable social and cultural change in which design had a role to play.

The success of this project was borne out in 2001 when Mobles 114 won the National Design Award.

Their designs are known for their high technological and functional quality and maximum optimisation of production costs. They stand out for the importance given to the functionality of the object and their distance from formalist exercises. Honesty is paramount and aesthetics consequence. Some of their most emblematic designs are the Gira table lamp (1978), the Tria bookcase (1978) and the Havana bench (1990).

Bold and functional in their approach, J.M. Massana and J.M. Tremoleda reinvented Barcelona s interior aesthetics through their timeless designs, prestigious enterprise and gracious friendship.
