Hugo França

I love these benches and chair by Hugo França - made from the raw hardwood of the Pequi tree.


Is that seaweed on the wall behind this bench? We have loads on our beach - maybe I'll sell them as art and make a packet ...

(Found via Wallpaper)
França used to work for a computer company - so I guess there is hope for us all!

I love these - they are like liveable sculptures ... and I would consider getting into the seaweed selling business - have you seen http://www.dunia-ecostore.com/float_pop.html?

Beautiful, I'd love the bench and table. So simple and honest somehow, they're almost poetic!

kendalee - I think a bench like that will look great in your island house. But you will probably have plenty of seaweed of your own to put up on the walls!
bronwyn - I like your description of simple, honest & poetic. (The best things in life tend to be like that, don't they?)
