BY GUSTAVO BITTENCOURT

Brazilian designer Gustavo Bittencourt works out of his studio in the mountainous region of Rio where he translates his experiences into unique works of furniture art. His design ethos centers around the creation of timeless pieces built to last a lifetime, and a belief that the handcrafting process imbues each piece with a soul all its own. 

As a child he was inspired by his architect mother and by university, his forays into furniture design were met with awards and accolades on a national level. Upon graduating with a degree in industrial design, he worked with some of Brasil’s top contemporary furniture masters including Zanini de Zanine. Adding to this resume, he gained international experience studying at the Politecnico di Torino in Italy and working for Thomas Heyes Gallery in Los Angeles in 2011.

"Ama is a silent film. It tells a story everyone can interpret in their own way, based on their own experience. There is no imposition, only suggestions.
