Mariana Lloyd

Born in Rio de Janeiro, 1986

Studied design at California University of Pennsylvania and graduated from PUC-Rio. The artist is constantly interested in surface design and how to combine nature, geometry, patterns and tessellations into interesting images and mosaics.

Leo Capote

Born in São Paulo

Graduated in Industrial Design in 2002 from Universidade Paulista.

The concept that Leo Capote has been working since 1997 is to discover how to reuse already industrialized objects that perform specific functions, designed with ergonomic, technological principles,  materials, finishes, manufacturing processes, etc.,to obtain others. These objects lose their original function and serve as parts that will integrate another system, and perform other functions in this system.

Hugo França

It is his inspiration; its forms, holes, cracks, burn and time marks moves his sensitivity and lead him to a carefully chosen design, a minimal intervention that generates unique pieces.
