Bruno de Carvalho the symbiosis between arch and design.
Historically, furniture design has always brought on point materials combinations.
But how much of this perception was influenced by architecture itself? That is the heart of Bruno de Carvalho's ideas.
d e c a r v a l h o a t e l i e r started in 2015 when the rising creative's desire to go beyond the houses and projects he designed took his mind over.
"I think it's nice to explain how the transformation process of Bruno the architect of houses to Bruno the architect of furniture happened."
"In 2014, my brain was already boiling with ideas, so I decided to make one of these designs. With a handmade drawing, a shoemaker, and a locksmith, my first product was born, the Postman Armchair."
The model is made of steel, carbon, leather, wood, and brass. The common and natural sources gained the touch of timelessness, evoking organic shapes.
His pieces can synthesize the extensive prior experience that Bruno got in his early architecture career.

How do you interact with the raw material?
Generally, the raw material is what guides my creations. I believe that when used harmoniously, they bring balance and elegance to the design.
How does this intense and very real connection between the world of architecture and furniture design feel to you?
I am easily touched by architecture. In my world, construction details like the meeting of different materials, beautiful solutions such as the mashrabiyas, or even great proportional balances make the discipline an inexhaustible source of inspiration to me.
"I don't see architecture and design working separately. A symbiosis between the two disciplines is necessary. The experience of both is only complete if they coexist."
