I want to take a break. I really do. Seems like half of North America is on summer holidays and things are getting a little chilly in Australia. How about Spain? Barcelona? Then the only place we can stay is Casa Batlló the impressive Art Noveau dreamscape conjured up by Antoni Gaudi. Now for a stroll on Las Ramblas. After we'll eat and drink in the late night air.

Architect Luis Pons' firm, Aponwao Design, is responsible for a wide range of projects that use materials from one end of the spectrum to another. Travertine marble for the East Hampton beach house of Latin singer Chayanne, and bakery carts covered in latex for dividers in a client's apartment. His own apartment is covered almost floor to ceiling in air mattresses and inflatable furniture. The first group of photos below are of Luis' live/work space, the next set are examples of the firm's interior design projects, and the last are objects designed by the firm, including side tables made of metal ball-chains, and 1950s furniture applied with picture frame moldings.
