The Mingarro Brothers,Juan (1978) and Alejandro (1981) were born in Huesca, and spent their childhood in Binéfar, drawing comics, building vehicles for their action figures and shooting movies with his domestic camcorder. In 2006, they founded Brosmind studio and established in Barcelona. Their style is fresh and optimistic and always uses fantasy and humour. Currently they combine commercial illustration with personal projects involving multiple disciplines, such as sculpture, music or video.
"If there is one sentence that perfectly defines the spirit of Brosmind it is our motto THIS IS OUR MOMENTO! When we first coined the phrase, we wanted to reflect the enthusiasm we feel for each new project and our desire to improve ourselves and face the future with optimism.
The good thing about working with a brother is that you have known him all your life.
A key element in understanding our studio is the fact that its founders and owners are brothers. This brotherly bond is inseparable from the BROSMIND concept and of vital importance both to the contents we generate and to the way we work.
After several years working shoulder to shoulder, we can now say that our style is fully consolidated. Personally, we like to describe it as fresh, optimistic and with a large dose of fantasy and humour.
Interestingly, what is now known as the Brosmind style didn’t exist before the creation of the studio, but arose from the need to develop a new kind of illustration which we could both do indistinctly." Excerpts from their book “WHY HOW WHAT” (Norma Editorial, 2014)

Monobloc tells the story of the best-selling piece of furniture of all time. Estimates claim there are a billion of these cheap plastic chairs in use all over the world. This unassuming chair threatens our environment and good taste but is indispensable for millions of people to whom a chair is a chair and nothing more. This is the tale of an object viewed through a critical eye on globalisation - a story that spans functionality and beauty, capitalism and sharing, consumption and recycling.
