Extraordinary Furniture Designs By Rui Alves
If you like extraordinary industrial designs and furniture designs , you probably heart about Rui Alves before. His creative technique comes from his family. Born in Paços de Ferreira, Portugal, Rui Alves comes from a family of skilled craftsmen. Rui’s grandfather was a carpenter and father was a woodworker. Since his childhood, Rui has been surrounded by tools and materials. His mind is always working on creating or disassembling something.
Rui studied industrial design at Instituto de Artes Visuais, Design e Marketing in Lisbon, graduating in 2001. In the same year, he set up his own studio (You can find the link below) back in his hometown to undertake projects ranging from furniture to product design.
His design approach reflects his love for materials, processes, and simple everyday objects. Always paying attention to details ‘’almost obsessively’’ he tries to make things that are simple, practical, and playful, and at same time give them a personality.
