«Valeu» is a Brasilian expression, used by all social classes, it means «it’s ok», «allright» or «won», and has the power to bring people closer, regardless they origins. From this reconciliation is born a stool, as a meeting symbol. His industrial structure invite the user to complete the object In a research of comfort, using his owns materials. Rio-de-Janeiro is a city of contrasts, between rich neigbourhoods with a smoothed architecture and the favelas where the gambiarra* is the first construction and creation source. the favelados* have the capacity to do from themselves, bringing a form of beauty and of primitivity in what they create. We invite that primitivity to achieve our seat with his adventurer aesthetic.
