Emotional Objects

 

Design of emotion

These “emotional objects” are bold, groundbreaking, with a soul of their own, and go well beyond mere functionality, embodying other characteristics that trigger reactions. Produced in Portugal, with materials of excellent quality, they’re conceived with the most adequate techniques by the most qualified craftsmen of the market. João Faria is the mentor of all this, and much more than an architect or a designer, he’s a creator of concepts, products, furniture, spaces, buildings and interiors. Someone who is able to get the best of two worlds, sometimes as different from each other as are modern technique and old tradition. This year, he was honoured with the title “#15 Designer of the World” in the categories “Bakeware, Tableware, Drinkware and Cookware Design”, and “#257 Designer of the World” in the categories “Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design”
