Architecture: Ana Varela designs beautiful flooring made up of tessellating patterns

Architect and designer Ana Varela was born and raised in Madrid, Spain, where she graduated from the Superior School of Architecture with a bachelors degree in 2007. Since then she’s led an impressive professional and academic career, directing Spanish design magazine Pasajes Diseño and pursuing a masters in Design for Luxury and Craftsmanship at ECAL in Lausanne. Now she teaches at ECAL and maintains a professional practice as an interior and product designer in Lausanne.

Within a portfolio that’s full of beautifully considered projects we’d highlight her Landscape Box and workshops for ECAL as being well worth a look but it’s her patterned flooring designs that we were most keen on; a beautiful array of silk-screened wooden planks that tessellate into an infinite number of striking patterns. It’s simple stuff, but executed superbly – a trademark of most former ECAL students.
