The professional and academic path in Architecture has been structured and developed in parallel with the Arts, defining a straight connection with it. The artwork developed since 2011 is based on structuring forms and colors in a way that they form a still image of a “subject” in motion. This “subject” – the main focus of the painting - can be an emotion, a meditative state, a personal situation occurred or simply a thought or an idea that suddenly appears in the canvas and it’s demanding for a physical existence.
Lives and works in Porto, Portugal.

Duet Rug - Multicolor carpet from Turkey.
These modern rugs come in a variety of different sizes and patterns and make for a beautiful focal point in your home. When making these rugs a synthetic wool material with textile qualities is used. Besides having a soft and comfortable pile to walk on, this material has several good features that among others make the rug lint free and easy to clean.
Synthetic wool (Polypropylene) is a man-made fibre, made up of tightly twisted yarns that give the rug a lively lustre. Polypropylene has a high resistance to wear and can withstand heat well. Rugs produced using polypropylene are ideal for people with allergies to, for example, natural materials. The material is antistatic which means it does not shed fibres or attract dust and is easy to clean.
All our machine-knotted rugs from Turkey are certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, a globally uniform and independent testing- and certification system for textiles. The certification means that the finished product is free from hazardous chemicals.
I like it!
Great carpet. Looks nice and is of good quality.
Fab rug, quality and design. Fast delivery would highly recommend..
Beautiful, solid and colourful rug. As beautiful as it was in the advertisement. If you are fine with synthetic wool, this one is perfect.
Love the design and it was value for the money but would have loved the option to pay more and get a wool version.
I was very interested to see an artist's painting translated (by the artist!) into a rug - it works really well. After years of plain rugs this has great visual impact.
Nice rug. Just didn't suit my decor. No problems with return
The colors are vivid, it's nice and soft to the touch, it arrived nice and clean (no lint or loose strings), and it was very well packed.
The colors in the rug will be perceived differently depending on the angle you view it from.
