A year ago Casa Seat opened its doors, the innovation hub that the Martorell firm has planted in the heart of the Catalan capital. This symbol of progress, located at the confluence between Paseo de Gracia and Diagonal , is more than a modern and open building, it is a declaration of intentions. In it, exhibitions of vehicles but also art are shown, such as the Loop Barcelona video art festival and its House of the Sun project by Pedro Torres . It has been 365 difficult days, even more so for an interior space, but the revitalization of culture continues to be one of the objectives of Casa Seat, which will celebrate its first anniversary surrounded by it.
If you have not yet visited Casa Seat in June, there will be no shortage of excuses. The Martorell firm building is the ideal place to hold your meetings, work in your coworking area or take a walk on a hot summer afternoon while discovering more about the mobility of the future. The only plant that is not open to the public is the one used by the firm’s designers, who visit its glass rooms to take over the urban environment that their vehicles really need. Models such as the Cupra Born, which will be on display to the public on the occasion of this milestone.
Luxury first anniversary
To celebrate this first anniversary Gabriele Palma, director of Casa Seat, has devised a four-day program that brings together the variety of styles, cultures and fashions that beat in Barcelona. The party will begin on June 16 with a performance by Antonio Orozco, an evening by invitation that will be attended by personalities, both from the automotive sector and all those who have promoted this disruptive project.
On Friday 18 it will be given by Ainoha Arteta, the Biscayan soprano who will perform in a day open to the public. His specialization in Spanish lyric will be revealed so that whoever wants to discover one of the figures with the most international projection on the national music scene.
As a counterpoint, and aware of the importance of conquering the youngest mobility user, Casa Seat will host a dancehalla session by Bad Gyal . This young Catalan is inspired by Jamaican rhythms to make us dance with her irreverent and uncomplexed lyrics. A production that she herself is in charge of and that will present Warm U p , her latest EP, on June 19 .
Sara Baras will bring magic and tradition on June 22 , being in charge of closing the cycle of performances. The choreographer and dancer Gold Medal for Merit in Fine Arts will not leave anyone indifferent with a modern flamenco performance, an ode to the vision of Casa Seat and its intention to intertwine culture and future.
There will also be mobility and the city
On the occasion of its first anniversary, from June 21 to July 31, the first exhibition of the artist Tvboy will be able to be visited. It is the first time that this urbanite has granted its 50 pieces to a multidisciplinary space such as Casa Seat . His works are characterized by denunciation, an argument that the Italian Salvatore will let flow on the walls of the different floors of the building.
Those who wish to see mechanics and history can stop by from June 4 to June 19 to see a unique sample of two wheels. The evolution of urban motorcycles is linked, to a large extent, by cities such as Barcelona, with mythical firms such as Vespa or Bultaco in charge of their mobility. In this free exhibition you will be able to discover pieces loaned by the Basella and Eusebi Marcó Motorcycle Museum , with models from Rieju, Bultaco, Ducati, Montesa or Derbi . A visit to the past before discovering the new Seat Mó, manufactured by Silence as we tell you in this link.
