This fixture was proposed to showcase the Sonic Incase Headphones in a commercial fixture competition.
The simple, smooth and clean look was achieved by abstracting the shape of the headphones and bringing it to its simplest form. Its height, design and technological approach would make it stand out of other commercial fixtures.

"In music a chord, by three notes is formed
that complement each other and make a better world.
Available in four different colors to make your own combination,
think of all the possibilities until you accomplish perfection."
These stools were inspired by the intersection of basic geometric figures and they will reveal their strong personality in the environment where they sit.
How many times have we had to decide between two total opposite things that we like? Should I choose this? Should I choose that? We go round and round on which thing would makes us look better or would go better with our room. We even make a list of pros and cons on each of the options and sometimes we talk to our friends to see what they would choose knowing that it does not matter what they say because we would be the ones with the last word.
The story of these chairs was born when I came up to my client with some initial sketches and asked him if he wanted to proceed with a strong, heavy-looking chair design or if he wanted a more organic and elegant chair design. After thinking for a few minutes and looking at me puzzled he said: "I want both." Probably after his answer my face looked more puzzled than his: "How do you mix and match two completely opposite shapes?" my mind said immediately.
This was my solution.

In an attempt to lower their prices, the furniture industry has been creating unreliable disposable products that take no more than a year to be thrown away. The street is one of the first places where

Based on the Cradle to Cradle framework I would like to propose a home desk that pursues the gold certification in the Cradle to Cradle Principles with special attention on Material Health, Material Reutilization and Social
Functionality and simplicity describe this piece that is available in two versions for different placing of working tools. Made out of pine wood and finished with strong varnish.

When I was remodelling a home I found an old cabinet and a table with plenty of drawers that were in very good shape. Unfortunately the cabinet was very old and damaged to keep it but since we have to take care of our planet, I decided to give the drawers and the table a new use. This is what a little paint and imagination achieved :)
