Story

Colombo

 

The decorative pigeon is a metaphor of the carrier pigeon and a caring message from DAM – always happy to welcome you. Its name “Colombo” is inspired by the etymology of pigeon (“columbus”) and also in the navigator and explorer Cristóvão Colombo. The Colombo pigeon flies by day and by night, expressing the desire to explore and be inspired beyond borders. The desire to never stop flying worldwide but always valuing its roots.


Life

Designers

 

Graduated in Design from the University of Aveiro, Joana Santos and Hugo Silva are the resident Designers. Their areas of intervention include equipment, graphic and web interface design and they develop integrated Design solutions, involving strategic thinking, technology and identity.

Joana has a special taste for graphic design and craftwork and her work process has always a practical approach. Hugo does not relieve the sketchbook and seeks inspiration in the everyday things to his drawings. Together, they develop narratives and explore emotions through colours, forms, technologies and materials. The result are products with more than what meets the eye – each piece has its singular details, its own story and an ecological approach.
