Amazonia are shoes inspired in the jungle. They born after a real experience of the designer in the Ecuadorian rain forest. The aesthetics and construction of the shoes are based on the overlaying system of the multiple trees and plants in the jungle, giving as a result a rich universe of contrast, shapes, shadows and lights when a person is walking under the trees and inside the jungle during a sunny day. In a fusion, the three layers were cut by laser and the entire shoe was made by hand.

Archie Folds are inspired by the potential of Japanese origami techniques in architecture as a solution for flexible spatial usage. They enable spaces to stay functional for longer and fulfill their potential when owners and requirements change. Archi Folds is a strong spatial gesture at the same time easily transported or moved thanks to their compact fold. High performance structures can be unfolded into a myriad of different shapes due to their structural flexibility, allowing two identical products to be installed in completely unique manners, re-used in different shapes and sizes.
Architextiles is a series of sound absorbing textiles with a woven 3D structure. Designed by renowned textile designer Aleksandra Gaca and manufactured by Casalis, the Architextiles collection was developed through an innovative combination of both craft and high tech elements, in a seamless process to create the panels. The textile panels, produced using sustainable materials, deliver two core features: decoration and noise reduction; the 3D texture of the woven fabric enables the panels to absorb sound waves more efficiently than flat textiles. Thus contributing to a more muted environment.
The TC Nexus is a limited edition, mechanical tie clip that is CNC machined from Grade 5 Titanium and carefully assembled and finished by the hands of the designer. Unlike traditional tie clips that require an internal spring, the titanium body of the TC Nexus itself acts as a spring and is completely open and flexible until joining a neck tie to a dress shirt. Operation is simple and requires only pinching two points of the levers to open and close.
Skinners are innovative footwear designed for travel and sports enthusiasts. The design challenge was how to fuse a sock and a shoe with all their properties into one uniform yet functional product.

Thanks to the compact size and a "second skin" feeling activating each muscle and tendon of the foot, Skinners tend to be used as primary or backup footwear for countless of outdoor or indoor activities.
