When we meet the new offices for our studio, we have found and very empty space, without life, very ugly place. The kind of project that our office do are very conceptual, experimental design, and of course, our space count be different, we decided to create a space with a lot of “blues, jazz and Bossa Nova”. Urban Lines and Brazilian furniture.

We used concrete for the walls, ceiling, rustic stone for the floor, and a black color, giving an urban style. The meeting table is a prototype created by Eduardo Sáinz, principal of our office; it was handmade by Rose Bueno, local artist. We choose a Xibô, armchair designed by Sergio Rodrigues, chairs fot he meeting table are designed by Carlos Motta, we have use a 3D tile on the meeting room, for acoustic needs. The working table have chairs design by Zanini de Zanine, we also have a painting of Roberto Burlemarx.

He is a very importante member of our team, responsible for keeping the stress off and giving inspiration on the projects. He is our boss.
