Pablo was founded in San Francisco in 1993 by Venezuelan-born industrial designer Pablo Pardo. Embracing a less-is-more ideology, Pablo frequently challenges traditional design metaphors, developing more practical solutions distilled down to their essence, form and light. A common thread links all of its creations, valuing permanence and sustainability, discarding the disposable mindset so prevalent today. Its mission is to create designs that deepen the relationship between objects, their users, and their environments.
Over the years Pablo has worked with several other designers to introduce new, unique fixtures to the Pablo collection. By collaborating with these creatives, the brand has continued to evolve into the powerhouse that it is today.
Fast forward to present day. Pablo’s designs have been propelled to the forefront of American contemporary lighting by an uncompromising devotion to simplicity and utility. By combining the most modern technology with the finest materials, Pablo is able to create unique, timeless designs with the power to transform any environment.
The group has evolved into a collaborative effort, The Pablo Studio. This small group of makers and inventors each have a unique skill set and diverse background. They share a passion and history in industrial design and craft, and a deep understanding of manufacturing, materials and technology. They aim to encourage interaction and a personal connection with their creations. When approaching a new project or design, these creatives isolate a concept, meticulously refines it, and then reduces it to its central principle.
