Origins of the brand

The very name of the company is based on these principles: as a matter of fact, it is due to salamander-shaped statue at the entrance of Parc Güell in Barcelona, one of the most ingenious work of Antoni Gaudì.

That statue is not a simple architectural element because it actually hides the overflow of an underground reservoir to collect rainwater that would have made all the houses in the park independent from the water point of view: energy efficiency at the beginning of the 1900’s.
