Founded in 1996 by architect Ilse lang, Faro Design edits and distributes its own products on Faro store, in Porto Alegre, as well as other shops in Brazil and other countries.
We design focused on the simplification of solutions, with open eyes to materials and cultures of our region, looking forward to create objects capable of generating identification and attachment for its intrinsic qualities, independent of ephemeral trends.
Our collection has many pieces that spin, stack and stretch to accomplish its function. We take care of mechanisms so that this interactive character also becomes playful, connecting the people to the things throug the play.
These efforts have been recognized in national and international publications and awards, including our work on many expositions of brazilian design here and abroad.
