"It is essential to know how to use volume, how to manipulate the space at your disposal.

A certain rhythm is necessary, a sense of balance,

an understanding of color.

I think a designer should know as much as possible about everything that has been made in the world, and about everything that is being made today.

Not that there is any question of copying someone else's work, but a certain familiarity with all aspects of design and its history is basic.  This knowledge gives the designer a confidence that allows him to achieve a result so harmonious that it seems spontaneous and natural."  Paco Munoz Cabrero
