Project DEW

“Although I love wood and design craftsmanship, in my career I had not experimented with such material as I would have liked.”

Dew is a system geared towards conquering walls. Dew adapts to the configuration of each new home to avoid the consumerist waste derived from the constant migratory flow that defines the way of life of this generation.

Dew prioritizes the ability to mutate from a flexible, fluid part that adapts to each new life circumstance. Dew will help us to conquer every small space in our habitat today, and also in that of tomorrow, with time it will age and begin to tell our story creating the feeling of belonging and home.

It works both as a single system and as a wathered system in smaller sets maximizing its flexibility.

It helps create emotional bonds through top quality materials worked in a simply way, without technical boasting, letting the natural beauty of red oak stand out through organic forms.

For maximum flexibility the Dew system is symmetrical. The most representative pieces, the backs of the shelves, have two fronts that allow them to be positioned on both sides, offering the possibility of creating the most ideal combination according to the space.

With nothing to hide, it is necessary to rethink the traditional anchoring systems and transform them into the sign of identity to the Dew system.

Time does not affect Dew, it will always be ready to change again.
