the use of modern and lasting
materials with an essence of
personal identity. She searches
to provide new unconventional
solutions.

Contemporary Italian pieces of furniture
where combined with new technology
material and original accessories. Each
space within the house was inspired in the
concepts of modernism, functionality and
originality.
Projects
Residential
Mirabilia

This apartment generates a dialogue
between the outside and the inside. With
the aid of noble and modern materials, both
the natural light of the apartment and its
views of the city where perfectly united.

Children´s room
Amplitude and larger playing spaces are created in
this room with the original L shaped drawers that
permit the children to be both tidy and comfortable.
Projects
Commercial
Puerto Madero’s Office
Once Puntos Production Company
The main concept for this office was the avant garde
decoration style. Tables and sofas are curved and gain
intensity with the use of a large palet of colors that
really light up the place.
Projects
Commercial
Puerto Madero’s Office
Puerto Madero, Notary Office
Many things determine a company’s
success. One of them is its office decoration
and design. Curved organic lines and stable
materials generate harmony and break with
the classic architectural standards.

INTERNATIONAL
EXHIBITIONS
Ritually traveling to each of the
exhibits,
especially
the
Milano
Design Week, I thought a must to
replicate the local effervescence.
Gradually we achieved it, coursing
different situations in each fair.
Different spaces, different proposals,
but the goal was, is and will be
always the same: to bring the
Argentine design to the WORLD.
