I can hardly remember a time when I was not with a pencil in my hand, it was always my vocation … invent, imagine, draw and create. I grew up surrounded by pieces of Tente, building and rebuilding over and over this and that. My first real vocational job was in a small family carpentry, designing furniture for commercial facilities, galleries and all kinds of cabinets and furniture. After fifteen years growing as a professional, with more responsible work, learning all there behind the production of furniture, I took the decision to return to the origin, go back, pencil in hand … to the conception and design of furniture, but this one that came out of my imagination, of course, influenced by my paternity.
I spent the next years developing a different, quirky style that could be described as animist, trying to give my designs a vital point that becomes more than just a functional piece. During this time I designed and built pieces ranging from cupboards, shelves and tables, in drawers and everything that comes into my mind. With the idea that a piece of furniture can be beautiful and yet functional, I tried to combine my knowledge as a woodworker and my technical skills, to create furniture with personality, leaving completely intact functionality.
