Our history.

If you want to know where to go, you must know where you come from.

DIARADESIGN emerged within the framework of the cooperativism of Mondragon Corporation with two main duties:

  1. To be the Industrial Design service provider for companies that belong to the Mondragon Corporation group and outsiders.
  2. To support the University of Mondragon in Industrial Design related field of knowledge and skills with the goal of training the future industrial designers.

DIARADESIGN overcame the difficulties of facing the first years of activity without previous experience, working on its own design discourse while dealing with companies needs.

DIARADESIGN had first-hand experience in how a crisis can lead a group of people that work together towards becoming a team. Moreover, a new approach for «Design Management» in which the figure of the project coordinator and sole client’s interlocutor emerged and the redefinition of the Industrial Services influenced the economic recovery of the company with numerous, varied and enriching projects.

In 2001 the merger with LKS Ingenieria S.Coop. allowed DIARADESIGN to expand and move towards an Integrated Project Management model. Product design projects were consolidated while the path towards mobility, one of DIARADESIGN’s specializations, began.

Forseeing the 2008 crisis, DIARADESIGN made a stand for the internationalization. This decision allowed DIARADESIGN to strengthen its internal structure and face the following years at an international level. The fruits of the internationalization effort came first from China, later from Asia and afterwards from the rest of the world, becoming a global player in the mobility field.

At DIARADESIGN we have always claimed the strategic role of design in the industry’s transformation. In fact, we tackle projects from an overall strategic vision of the companies we work for. These projects cannot be understood as singular actions that are more or less successful, but rather as links in a chain of decisions and actions oriented in the same direction. This means that the satisfaction of the client or final user is achieved without forgetting the feasibility and profitability that sustain the organization.

We come from being a first generation of industrial designers in Spain, to becoming global design partners thanks to our determination and great teamwork.

We provide experience-driven design solutions that help turning your strategies into real product and services.

Awards.

Awards are appreciated, but the best recognition are clients that rely on us and happy users.
