Story

Pipo

 

Pipo refers to the traditional wood barrel used for the transport and storage of wine. The mobility of the product is associated to the commercial expansion of the wine and it is as if each person carried this cultural history when carrying Pipo.

This piece is produced in agglomerated dark cork, referring to the tone of aged casks. This material also makes it lightweight and slip resistant. The rope emphasises the old look and it can be also produced in other colours, making it most fun and adaptable to the environment and taste of people.


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.
