GIAN & Natalia

Industrial Designer + Pastry Chef  |  Partners for Life

A blend of hard work, experience and love for making things. Our formal training as designer and pastry chef combined with each of our experiences in the retail fabrication and culinary fields, instilled in us the need to move between the workshop and the kitchen and take on the task of creating objects to address the specific needs of the Food Service (& Catering) Industry.

Together with our shop manager Arne "el perro salchicha" and our talented collaborators, we are excited to help you with your next project.      



Our Services



We enjoy being involved in all parts of the design process of a project, combining our experience in industrial design and the culinary industry to create unique products that will serve our clients needs and fulfill their desires and expectations.

Let us know what you have in mind and we'll work together to develop your idea, go through materials and set you up with a design package that will include drawings / renderings, graphic elements and digital fabrication files if required.  


Each piece is handcrafted and assembled by us, in our studio located in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. We use locally sourced, sustainable hardwoods and materials, and will only use food safe hand rubbed finishes.

We are very lucky to have an amazingly talented team of collaborators, supporters and partners that compliment us and help us address all aspects of the fabrication process; including textiles, CNCmanufacturing, metalwork and photography/video making. 


We understand the nature of our products, the materials used and the strains they face throughout their usage. But mostly we care about our customers and we want to build a long lasting relationship with them. That is why alongside our design and fabrication services, we also offer maintenance and repair services, whenever possible. 

ConsultinG / Collaboration

It is in our nature to help in every way possible and to the full extend of our capabilities and skill set. Galpón forms part of British Columbia's food industry and works together with local business and individuals in order to support and give back to the community. 

We have been very lucky to be able to work in different projects outside the shop and the kitchen, ranging from filming sets, cultural events and private homes. We are always glad to help you with your set up,  shoot those social media short edits or make that "one of" piece for your home. Any excuse is a good excuse for us to work with you.

Each piece is carefully handcrafted based on the client’s needs. A pleasure working with our favorite woodcrafters at Galpon
