CREATION / INNOVATION

I am fascinated by the infinite human capacity of invention and transformation, and by the alchemic generosity of materials allowing themselves to be transformed. 

 

With this sense of enchantment I create and optimize products and systems for value, beauty and circularity. I also offer innovation and design mentorship and facilitate collective and co-creative processes for many companies and institutions in Brazil and abroad.

The research process may be long (years..) ou short (weeks), but it's always meticulous and experimental. I enjoy to explore each material in depth to find innovative ways to reveal its value and potential.
