The Portuguese Designer Rui Alves

Rui Alves was born in 1977 in Portugal. He comes from a family of craftsmen, since his father and grandfather were carpenters. His childhood was characterised by tools and materials, which later resulted in his intensive exploration of the materials and the production process as a designer.

After studying industrial design in Lisbon in 2001, he founded his own design studio in Paços de Ferreira. Since 2010, it is called Rui Alves design office. His furniture is characterised by practical and simple designs that have always been created with great attention to the material. For his work, Alves was awarded the Red Dot Award.
