Designed to be the protagonist of a time of leisure, Charisma is a chair that displays, in its prismatic shapes, the boldness of an innovating design. Making the most out of its expressive edges, Charisma is a piece that creates an antagonistic sense of desire and uncertainty. The cork texture and a drawer compartment highlight the morphology of a charismatic piece that combines comfort and a unique emotional experience.
Flux carries within itself the essence of being Portuguese. Like the Portuguese caravels that once criss-crossed the deepest oceans, Flux, a desk and chair set, criss-crosses the space around it, transforming into a distinguished work area, full of personality. The side leg reinvents the tradition of azulejo tile with an original and inspiring pattern.
The sea voyages and explorations that marked the golden age of Portuguese discoveries breathe life into various places in Portugal. Lisbon receives, on the banks of the Tagus, the heritage of many conquests. Hope is a stylised representation of a ship's hull that evokes, with its shapes, the scale and faceted stone of the Padrão dos Descobrimentos monument in Belém. Hope is a large sideboard that functions as a bar, transforming into a paradigmatic piece of perfect alliance between form and function.
Stronghold of multiple impressive and mysterious species, the sea undulates the imagination of those who love it. It is from this endless voyage that Ivory obtains its visual representations, memories from before and from now, and from the cities perched by that same sea. Ivory is a suspended sideboard with a contemporary and dynamic design, embraced by a bas-relief morphology that honours the aesthetics of Arab architecture and the design of Portuguese tile.
Evoking the memory of various references to the maritime universe, the Navy chaise longue is a tribute to the sea and to those who worship it. The curves that form it are the reflection of the waves that crash along the coast in a rhythm strongly marked by the morphology of a country. Navy is a piece that stands out not only for the elegance of its lines, but also for its futurist structure, projecting on the backrest the bow of a small typically Portuguese boat. The ornaments used in the lower part of the chaise longue and the golden trim gives Navy a special and sophisticated character.
Originated in the 16th century, Portuguese azulejo tiles have taken, over the years, a prominent role in various settings, giving rise to the creation of so many different patterns and aesthetics that quickly distinguished them from all others. Bloom is a set of three tables that highlight the Portuguese soul of the azulejo, embodied in purposefully designed mosaics. The filigree centre, in shades of gold, illustrates and reinforces the genuinely Portuguese character of these three pieces that, in unique detail, reinvent and admirable centuries-old art form.
Billow is a chaise longue that points in the direction of contemporary ergonomic design, without neglecting an extreme care with form and function. Using the mariner's astrolabe, an ancient navigation instrument, as a point of reference, Billow is a piece for indoors or outdoors that evokes the greatness and magnificence of the age of discovery, without neglecting the reproduction of the skilful ornamentation work that formed the body of the mariner's astrolabe.

Melody is a striking piece, conspicuous and imposing, making the space it occupies unique and admirable.
