What a dream! A glasshouse studio for playing with flowers! ohhh!
On a recent trip to Barcelona, I discovered Manuela from Gang and the Wool and the Monument Hotel. Here is her story and her style. Enjoy…..
The GANG AND THE WOOL is my studio, my flower shop.
It emerged in 2010 when I decided to start my own business. I am an industrial designer and previously studied Architecture and Fine Arts. Then study different masters they offered a wide range of what is design and art, but my passion for contact with the materials, pure and simple creation, led me to start my own studio.
My love of nature comes from my childhood.
I grew up in a very natural setting. My father is a rancher in Uruguay and many times we spent whole seasons in the field. Also, my mother was able to convey her passion for flowers, we spent hours in the garden, next to her and when weekends were leaving the field, taught me not only the name of the flowers, and care, but also to dry between books, to observe the leaves, stems, colors and different textures.
My inspiration is definitely in nature and seasons.
My style is the nature style. I like to do a bit of everything; keeps me alert. I love discovering nature and everything it offers.
I feel beauty, and my senses are restless.
I love the balance of the simplest things together to complex and I think the secret is in the subtleties. I consider myself an idealistic person in every sense of the word.
Your most memorable jobs
I love all the projects that get involved and try them out all my best, but now, we are beginning to season adventure for our daily work at the five-star Hotel Monument GL and it is a great challenge. Along with the other florists that also work in Hotels of these characteristics, we know that the complexity of the flowers in the behavior of a hotel, is very different from a flower that can be seen in an event or in a house, it is a challenge. That makes you a better florist and above all, a better person.
Of course, I am also happy when I think of the wedding, where the bride and groom leave us act and fully trust us is my greatest challenge.

I have always felt passion for those small or large glass houses. They seem parallel worlds to me in a garden, and they are also changeable, flexible, full of transparencies, flowers …. Of plants.
In addition to Monument Hotel GL 5 * where we have an atelier in the heart of Barcelona .
