Silva

About Project

Silva is a modular solution made out of Expanded Black Cork that consists of four different pieces. From a stool to a bench, or even a coffee table, the design allows the user to express themselves.
Its inspiration comes from the Portuguese family culture. Each piece has a different shape because everyone in a family is different, but in the end, they all come together, establishing union and harmony.
The brief for this project was given by Magis.
