Gud is a Porto, Portugal based design collective founded by Alexandre Kumagai and Paulo Neves. The company came to my attention recently with the launch of their beautiful new line of sculptural mirrors. I also couldn’t resist including their striking orca chair for good measure.
Above: fazer accessories (2013) – brass and marble – “The luxury of simplicity revealed by the game between geometric shapes and bold materials.” Contact gud for purchase inquiries.
Below: orca chair (2012) – solid French oak wood – designed for the Portuguese company WEWOOD.
According to Kumagai and Neves, “gud seeks for beauty in the truth of shapes, creating objects that aim to speak through our culture and memories. With great attention to detail, we try to take the best from the materials.” What do you think?
