Self designed objects
Studying Product Design at Saint Martin's in London has left me with the skills and inspiration to design my own furniture, objects and interiors. What you see has all been hand made by me, except the heavier metal works. Always developing new ideas, I am constantly making new pieces to beautify the world around me. As Beata Heuman puts it: "Every room must sing". My new collection by the working title "Soft and curvy" is coming soon.
My Brazilian Collection
All objects ranging from seating to bar trolley, room dividers and vases are designed and mostly handmade by me.
My dream is to create wonderful spaces from scratch to finish. This is my "Brazilian Collection": designed, produced and photographed in Rio de Janeiro.
The pieces find conceptual inspiration in brazilian cultural objects. They are designed with a minimal line and sophisticated materials.
The bar trolley "Caipirinha" is a mix between a flashing night street vendor cart and a fancy tea trolley.
The lounger „Carioca“ gets his precise measurements from the typical low and comfortable beach chairs which line Rio's beaches in the thousands. The shape and material however are more elegant.
"Ipanema" are mirrors that remind of the sunset at sea. Indigenous craft techniques were the starting point of the "Indio" tables and the room divider „Maracanã“. Maracanã was the indigenous name in Tupi language of a parrot bird which used to fly where the stadium is standing now. The way in which the cinammon wood has been assembled is inspired by indigenous architecture. The Kamayura indios produce tables made from knotted rods; I developed mine so that it can be closed and transported in the quiver with the arrows.
The pumpkin vases seem to be a percussion instrument of african origin: the „Xequeré“.
HAND MADE HOTEL
Architecture and interior design inspired by Brazilian Modernism, natural hand-made objects and with a strong focus on wellbeing and the haptic experience.

In my free time I learned a 3D program and designed my own personal Boutique Design Hotel.
This informs of my wish to design unique Boutique hotels, cafés, restaurants and pop-up shops!

These two mirrors were designed by me. Just playing with juxtapositions, reflections and fragmentations.
