I am not sure if everybody understands quite well that I work in two companies: Oiti and Grampo. This is a good chance to briefly explain how it works.
Oiti is my baby, a company which I started in 2004, at 26, with a lot of passion and very little knowledge. Turned out, thank God, passion was enough to keep me going through out my personal and professional learning saga. It was an adventure and it still is. I won’t prolong myself on describing Oiti because this is Oiti’s blog and here or on the website you can find all the info you need about the company and myself.
Grampo is my Design Shop, which I founded together with my dear friend and competent fellow Architect Manoela Beneti in 2007. At Grampo we sell not only my own Oiti designs but a great range of young and already stablished designers. This place, located in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, has become the convergence point of great minds. Several collaborations took form there, since amazing people from different fields of design, architecture and art often run into each other at Grampo. The most spontaneous and delicious talks arise there on fantastic sunny saturday mornings.
Grampo is also a multifunctional space. Monoela’s Architecture studio, my own Architecture Studio and Oiti are all combined in the same place. So if we ever have the pleasure of your visit, you will see a very alive place, full of visual information: great designs and very happy people working hard on what they love to do.
Grampo is on Summer sale! It will be a pleasure to receive your visit!
