Under the name of “Fernando Luis Alvarez presents… just for Paco Camús Private Collection” some of the most representative Camus’ design pieces have been showcased in this new store together with other works of art, such as paintings and sculptures of local artists, in order to create a link between furniture and art.

The idea is to turn the former exhibition into a stand-alone store that will offer exclusively Camus’s work for sale.
