Description

Continuously developing of objects made of soapstone for many years, ALVA has explored the plastic potential of this material in different ways, in addition to experimenting with other elements. The last result of this long experience presents the PERFUMARIA line, where the stone is accompanied by noble woods, with shapes and geometries that refer to perfume bottles. The collection consists of three different vases, each with a turned wooden lid. The shapes and the contrast between the materials highlight the nobility of the raw materials and the exuberance of each component. PERFUMARIA pieces come with two lids each: one made of wood and one made of stone. These, when used next to the vases, create sculptural and playful compositions.

About the designer


ALVA design

ALVA is a furniture and object design studio founded in 2012 by siblings Susana Bastos, artist and fashion designer, and Marcelo Alvarenga, architect. Its projects result from the meeting of these two visions, the architectural and the artistic. In addition to the usual rationality and functionality, its creations explore the unusual, the new features and an expressive materiality.

 

ALVA launched its first line of furniture and objects at MADE 2013, in São Paulo.

 After this release, it has partnered with Etel Design, a very important producer and promoter of brazilian design, who fabricates and sells some of its creations.

 

 

Since its first release, ALVA’s creations were published on several articles on websites and magazines, national and international ones, such as WGSN, Dezeen, Casa Vogue, Casa Claudia, Wish House, AMC, and the french newspaper Liberation.

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
