Story

Duo

 

With a strong geometric character, DUO is a dialogue between two different tonalities of cork.

DUO exists in 5 versions. Each one rise from its two-dimensional pattern of tile becoming into a three-dimensional volume which ends in a circular shape. So, it’s possible to alternate between two functions: a square table and a circular stool. Together, the 5 versions of DUO create vibrant compositions and a game of shapes according to the place from where they are observed.


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.
