Além (in Portuguese) means beyond, go further, which is what our objects aim to achieve. Not following conventional and expected concepts of functional design but trigger a dynamic and mutable conversation, allowing the unpredictable. A chair is not only to sit, a vase not merely to water, a lamp not only to light the room but illuminate the imagination. Objects shall question expectations, through premises that elevate each piece and each design, to something else, something more.
