p.ta: ‘a corporate renovation project in Rio de Janeiro. The main change proposed for the existing project was in the top terrace of the building, which includes the construction of a roof, tables and seats. The proposed concept is visual continuity of the existing deck, as well as of the roof and the furniture, with rupture in the orthogonal axes at some points. When the tables are gathered, they form different compositions with cavities /voids that can be used to put different things (bags, drinks, plants) without interfering with the user´s view.’ /

m.sa: ‘lamps based on Jellyfishes and made like a Kirigami (from Japanese: kiru=cut and kami=paper). Therefore, each is a one twined piece of metal, cut with a laser machine or a water jet cutter, allowing no waste of material.’ /

l.ca: ‘a lamp which is based on concentric movements, typical in natural elements. This allows no waste of material, because it is one twined piece. It was developed through a parametric plug in that defines the thickness and amount of the cut straps, according to the lighting requirements, space distribution and customer’s needs.’  /Biomimetics design furniture

p.ra: ‘bookshelf whose design is based on Biomimetics, through the analysis of a spider-web: denser in the center and sparsed in its ends.’
