Brota 3, Soapstone Vase by Alva Design

About

Brota 3 - Soapstone vase by Alva Design Materials: Soapstone Dimensions: 15 (Ø) x 40 (H) ALVA is a furniture and objects design office, formed by brothers Susana Bastos, artist and designer, and Marcelo Alvarenga, architect. Their projects are the result of the meeting of these two visions, the architectural and the artistic, and beyond the usual rationality and functionality, they seek the unusual, new uses and an expressive materiality. The duo's creation process starts from a sensitive observation of people's daily lives, their habits and current needs, together with a perception of new potentialities to be artistically explored. In the development of each piece, the technical and aesthetic baggage of the brothers, acquired through important experiences in the architecture and fashion market, is added to a strong relationship with their Minas Gerais and Brazilian origins. In the execution phase, the selection of raw materials and the exquisite manufacturing, often handcrafted, give a unique aspect to the works. The result is contemporary pieces loaded with memory. Alva's first line of furniture and objects was launched in 2013 at the MADE (Mercado, Arte, Design) fair in São Paulo. Following this launch, the firm partnered with Etel - a brand now known worldwide for publishing the best of Brazilian design - to produce and market some of its creations, bringing the brothers' names into the special group of authorial designers represented by it. Since their first release, Susana and Marcelo's creations have gained visibility in several important publications, websites and magazines, both national and international.

About the Maker

Galerie Philia Furniture

Galerie Philia is an international contemporary sculptural design and art gallery representing emerging and established designers and artists. The gallery is the brainchild of two brothers who share a lifetime passion for art, literature and philosophy. Their distinct academic background sets them apart from their peers, as it sees them following a rhizomatic and transcultural approach in the way they select works. This involves combining elements from multiple cultures in what becomes a network of harmoniously interconnected roots, ultimately revealing the beauty of each unique creation. The gallery’s non-hierarchical curation sits apart from the ephemerality of trends and focuses instead on the true aesthetic quality of the piece – alluring and timeless. Unlike others, Galerie Philia does not focus on a single style – whether minimalist, organic or raw – but rather embraces heterogeneity. The Galerie Philia takes pride in discovering new talents, providing them with multiple international platforms to showcase their latest creations. As well as propelling the newest generation of 21st century collectible design, Galerie Philia also works with internationally known design artists. Galerie Philia has a strong international presence, with galleries in Geneva, New York and Singapore. In addition to their permanent spaces, the gallery organizes temporary group exhibitions and artists residencies in first-class locations around the world.
