Story

Silva

 

Mr. Silva is a householder with a friendly appearance. This wall clock is suspended by a straw strap hung from a fixed wall peg. The character’s moustache corresponds to the hour indicators, bestowing a decorative and narrative personality onto an object which is usually merely functional. Silva is destined for 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.
