Design process

"The challenge of the contest was to design an infinite object. That is why I began with trying to define what the concept of infinity was for me and chose Heraclitus’ idea of change, that change is the only thing infinitely constant in life. This suggested to me that if I created a static product it would be very difficult for it to really last over time as circumstances in my life and in the whole world are constantly changing. Therefore, I looked for a product that would be able to adapt to that change."

Vision

The idea behind Dew, is a system with the ability to change and adapt to each new circumstance in life. Dew will help us to conquer every small space in our home today and tomorrow, and will age with time and tell our story, creating a feeling of belonging and home.

It works both as a single system and as a combination of smaller sets, maximizing its flexibility. It helps create emotional bonds through top quality materials worked in a simply way, letting the natural beauty of the 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.

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