Our history.

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

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

  1. To be the Industrial Design service provider for companies both within and outside of the Mondragon Corporation.
  2. To support the University of Mondragon in the Industrial Design field with the aim of training future industrial designers.

In 1986, DIARADESIGN was founded as one of the first industrial design studios in the Basque Country.

We began working on our own design discourse while at the same time dealing with companies’ needs. We demonstrated how design could add value to products and make them more competitive and succeeded in making design culture more widespread.

DIARADESIGN had first-hand experience in how a crisis can lead a group of people that work together towards becoming a TEAM.
In those days, a new approach for «Design Management» in which the figure of the project coordinator and sole client’s interlocutor emerged. In addition, 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.

Since our foundation, DIARADESIGN has worked with international clients and participated in congresses around the world. However, it was in 2006, foreseeing the 2008 crisis when 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 other Asian countries and afterwards from the rest of the world, becoming a global player in the mobility field.

We have always believed in the strategic role of design in the industry’s transformation.

This is why we have developed product-service driven projects to improve people’s experiences from a strategic design point of view. Many projects that we have developed for the healthcare, mobility and industry fields are proof of this.

At DIARADESIGN we have overcome the pandemic situation in the same way as in other crises: transforming ourselves by learning, unlearning and relearning without forgetting our roots.

We have strengthened collaborations by taking advantage of technology to achieve new horizons and push innovation forward. This has led us to become even more aware of our role as designers and our impact on society.

We will continue designing to transform strategies into realities, with empathy and a humanity-centred vision even more present than ever.

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 is clients that rely on us and happy users.

Shall we transform together?
