‘We are interested to work with materials that help preserve our environment with elegance and cleverness. Our challenge will be to design furniture and accessories around those materials trying to push the boundaries of each of them. We also love the poetic aspect that is behind these materials and their traditional source of inspiration, ” said the designers.
