Story

Maria

 

Maria explore the genre issue and has a human and humoristic character. The lampshade represents a women straw hat, typical of the Portuguese region of Baixo Minho. The handles accentuate the humorist intention of the piece, because Maria speaks too much. The drawers have illustrations of the belongings of the character. Maria is destined for indoors, can be produced in different colours and can adapt itself to children, youngsters and adults.


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.
