Portugese designer Hugo Passos designs daily lifestyle objects that are familiar yet a delight to own and use. This London-based designer draws inspiration from his constant interest in the humanity of everyday items. Passos wishes to stay true to the true purpose of furniture pieces, insisting that they should serve their functional purpose above all else. That being said, he is also incredibly detailed to artistic aesthetic, the materials, the structure and the comfort that guide the final synthesis of each of his designs.
Since setting up his own design studio in 2012, Passos has amassed a list of notable clients including the Monocle magazine. Hugo Passos collaborated with Fredericia to create the Piloti Tables, a series of oakside coffee tables.
