Story

Valentim

 

Valentim is a sofa that refers to the nostalgia of the serenades dedicated to a maiden at the balcony. Its light and turned structure in solid wood interprets the architectural element of the balcony – a space to share both moments of conviviality or of intimacy as a kiss.

The sofa was designed to be attractive from any angle and the structure in wood leaves the upholstery suspended. Its delicate curves welcome us and express the ideal serenity that makes any environment unforgettable.


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.
