Origem is conceptual project developed under the scope of the Master in Product Design at the ESAD CR. The reasoning starts with the identification and recognition of raw materials and its potential within the domestic territory in what comes to easy access and environmental sustainable value. Later, its applicability in product context was developed. The biggest challenge was the conformation of matter into useful forms, disclosing its organic and natural side.
The name of the project suggests the use in outdoor spaces and closes the product cycle by returning to its origins: The tree.
It was also nominated for Favourite Design in April 19, 2014
