Award-winning designs created to add value to living spaces.

Based in São Paulo, Brazil, Luisa and Lilian Parrado of Estúdio Parrado create minimalist furniture and home accessories with a focus on function, customization, and versatility. The sisters see design as “an intelligent, smart and delightful version of something ordinary”, a process that provides endless possibilities to simplify and improve the everyday in smarter ways. The award-winning Loop Mirror and Wing Shelf exemplify the co-founders’ creative approach perfectly. Both feature a restrained aesthetic and subtle, but distinctive presence that aims to complement and add value to modern interiors. In a similar way to the studio’s Garden Module, the two new designs involve user interaction.

The Loop Mirror features three components which the user has to put together via a simple system. Thus, the assembly process not only becomes personal but it also reveals the ingenuity of the design. Made using CNC technology, the Loop Mirror comes with a steel frame with two holes, a concrete base, a mirror glass, and a pin that connects all of these elements. Without glue or nails, the design optimizes the structural system to enhance the clean aesthetic. At the same time, it highlights the features of the different materials.

The interactive Wing Shelf has a dynamic and modular design. It references the movement of a flock of birds though the shape and the flexibility of the steel brackets. Made of reforested pine wood, the base boasts many small perforations. These openings allow the user to change the placement of the brackets and adapt the unit to specific needs. Removable small screws and nuts make customization easy and fun. The fluidity of the design defines both its functionality and its clean, delicate appearance. The Loop Mirror and Wing Shelf have received prestigious 2018 Silver A’ Design Awards, in Milan, Italy, as well as European Product Design Awards in 2017, in Brussels, Belgium.
