Western | Sofa

Alentejo | Side Table

Alentejo side table is a glimpse over the South of Portugal where thousands of cork oaks trees raise their canopies to the sky. Overlapped on branches opened in obtuse angles, the canopies are separated from their support bases, being gracefully balanced above the ground. These typical trees seem like tables spread across the horizon.

Designer: Joana Santos Barbosa (Portugal)


Figueroa | Armchair

Located in the sunny California on the south-west of the United States of America, the charming Figueroa Mountain is a magical landscape that led to the creation of the Figueroa armchair. The long curves of this mountain were taken to the armchair’s exterior and the mountainside ripples, that seem to have been dug by large fingers coming from the sky, were placed on the inside.

Designer: Joana Santos Barbosa (Portugal)
Material: Brass


Tree Branches Wall Lamp

The technique of the original side table is detailed as if we were closely looking to a single branch that hides us from the sunlight while we stand in its shadow. The light only appears on a secondary plan, brightening the wall around it.

Tuna Kvarn

After creating the bookcase Into the Woods to represent a long walk through the Swedish woods towards the top a mountain, Joana Santos Barbosa conceived the mirror Tuna Kvarn to show what she saw while reaching the top. The irregular forms of the frozen lake, created by a simple mirror, are as faithful to reality as the distant memory allowed.

Western | Armchair

Into The Woods | Bookcase

Many years after visited the heart of Sweden, Joana Santos Barbosa creates ‘Into the Woods’ to celebrate the charm of Nordic nature.

Designer: Joana Santos Barbosa (Portugal)


Tree Branches | Mirror

The mirror ‘Tree Branches’ adds the missing piece to the wreath of leaves left incomplete in the side table with the same name. The handmade traditional art of marquetry is the queen of the set by putting together three different tones and shapes of burned rosewood, ebony and olive tree in half gloss finish that perfectly imitate the dry touch of autumnal leaves. The beveled details allow each leave to detach from the wall, in a seemingly disorganized set that honors the splendor of the season.

Designer: Joana Santos Barbosa (Portugal)


Na Pali | Tables

Numerous sculpted needles extend across the towering cliffs of the breathtaking Na Pali Coast. The Na Pali tables recreate the seamless parallel throughout the slope, as if each needle had been highlighted from the remaining weight of the surrounding mountainous. The connection between the walnut pieces in half gloss varnish appears reduced in oxidized brass and the glass tops take the central faceted shape, allowing the observation of each individual blade between the empty spaces.

The Special Tree
