José Antonio Gandía-Blasco Canales was born in Ontinyent, Valencia. After studying law at the Valencia University, he joined the family business GANDIA BLASCO, a blanket manufacturer. After travelling throughout Spain as a business agent, he began to take on responsibilities in the company. The building of his summer residence in Ibiza in 1996 and the need to furnish the house with outdoor furniture that would match the architectonic concept, took José A. to take a closer look at furniture design for the first time. In close collaboration with the architect, they developed the “Na Xemena” collection which is still the outdoor furniture reference of the company Gandia Blasco. Experimenting and innovating with materials and shapes, he has been able to turn the ideas of a lover of the Mediterranean culture into a brand image and lifestyle which are well known on the five continents.
