Story

Cortina

 

Cortina is a pendant lamp which plays with light as a delicate curtain. The shape is casted from a block cork which evokes a piece of land levitating. The metal sheet with its reflecting surfaces valorizes the light and form a perfect contrast with the warm aspect of the natural cork.

Cortina values the light, the land and the nature, transposing the outside garden to indoors.


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.
