And my furniture is exactly my interpretation of shapes, mixtures, how I can express myself, how I transform my references, my points of view. view, what I believe. " "I really like to develop my furniture with a difference, I like to create a relationship with people, develop an interaction, because I think of timeless furniture, that will last for a lifetime. So these furniture end up becoming not only furniture, but a good immaterial, irreplaceable, which ends up being part of the family, of its history. I believe that when we put our hands together, as artisans, we pass our feelings onto the furniture, which brings soul and makes it unique. "
