Bigas has also developed designs projects in interior spaces, graphic image, exhibitions, lamps, tables, offices, and images. He created, for instance, the Micro lamp, a sort of minimal giraffe, or the Ramon chair. From 1995 to 2001, Bigas was the director of the FAD association.Ramón Bigas firmly believes that above intuition there is seriousness and pragmatism, even if he also goes for a little thoughtlessness in life: "because if not, one would not have children, make trains, nor move, and then, of course, one would not be able to live. What matters is well-done job."
