Celebrate #Barcelona92disseny with us

It's been 25 years since Antonio Rebollo lit the Olympic flame at the opening of the Barcelona Olympic Games 92. But who was behind that idea? Who designed that cauldron?

We invite you to share those design objects that you remember from the summer of 1992: posters, examples of architecture, merchandising, product design and industrial design. Use the hashtag # Barcelona92disseny on Twitter and Instagram until 9th August and together, we can create a board of images to celebrate the 25th anniversary! You can find it at this link:

Need some examples? We have 5 iconic Olympic objects  (Cobi, Olympics posters, the torch, the logo and the lighting of the flame), but we also have other works related to product design:

  • The Garriri chair. This was a bet by Javier Mariscal that went beyond the legendary Cobi. You can see it at the exhibition "From the world to the museum".
  • City Line intercom. Surely you'll have seen this or maybe you even have one at home. It was designed by Ramón Benedito for Fermax Electrónica and won the Valencia Innovation Award. You can also see in person at the museum.
  • The Toledo armchair.  In 1992, Barcelona was a city buzzing with activity, and the terraces brought a large part of it to life. This chair, designed by Jorge Pensi, was part of this new urban landscape. You can also see this being exhibited at the museum.
  • The Mirallmar mirror. Households were also incorporating new designs. This was the case with this Mediterranean-style mirror by Eduard Samsó, which was produced by BD. Ediciones de Diseño.

What designs do you remember from ‘92? Share it using the hashtag #Barcelona92disseny!
