A childhood in the countryside, Lina Bo Bardi’s legacy, artisanal joinery and the inspiration in concretism merge to build the work of Paulo Alves. The result is an expression of the Brazilian design. Seen in perspective, Paulo’s 20-year career reveals a creativity in which wood - and its natural and symbolic characteristics - is the focus. Always with amusing outcomes, his mastery and unique work takes us to the legacy of the great masters of the modern Brazilian furniture. Paulo is an architect graduated at USP - São Carlos.
