Product Designer in Porto, Daniel Duarte found his passion for design when he realized that transforming different materials and processes into new products could have a positive impact on people’s lives. Growing up in a small Portuguese town in Alentejo was crucial in shaping who he was. Spending time with toys and everyday objects, in particular, taught him to think, question, and broaden his vision about what was out there and what could be done next.
Determined to make design his way of life, he graduated in Product and Interior Design. Throughout all these years, he found space to try using new and forgotten materials in completely new contexts, helping him discover how to create contemporary and robust concepts.
Since then, he hasn’t stopped for a moment, striving to combine old and new design with fashion, visual arts, and architecture to provide people with the best possible furniture experience. “His true fulfillment is to create something that has not been created yet with processes and materials that we do not yet know.”
