Ramón Benedito was born in 1949 in Barcelona, and studied in the Elisava design school. At the outset of his career, he worked on massive plastic objects, but in the 80s he chose to create objects for specialised industries, such as laboratories, opticians, telecommunications, microelectronics, high fidelity, and precision instruments. His designs, highly rational and rigorous, reveal however a warm and Mediterranean line of thought.
In 1973 he founded Benedito Design with Maite Prat, a studio specialised in product design and development, in particular in appliances and computer equipment, technical and scientific instruments, lighting, domestic appliances, packaging, and furniture. In 2000 the studio moved to its new headquarters in Sant Cugat, and in 2004 the second generation joined the company through her daughter, architect Gae Benedito.
In 1984, Benedito created the experimental design group Transatlantic, together with Josep Puig and Lluís Morillas, one of the few groups of transgressor design that emerged in Spain during the 80s. They carried out an outstanding technological and formal research task, without restriction. Transatlantic split in 1989, although Benedito has continued on his own in the experimental line.
