Each week, we bring you something a little bit different from the last, whether it be the latest design news, a classic design revisited, a recent exhibition or trip or an exclusive guest edit from an influential designer or blogger. Remember, we love to hear your feedback, so why not let us know what you think about our blog posts by email or Twitter? Enjoy!
“Here, we are happy people, with smiley faces and colourful minds. We are proud of this.”
Two.Six aren’t just any ordinary design brand. With a great deal of energy and enthusiasm, the Two.Six team produce designs that are vibrant, distinctive and reflective of their positive outlook on life. We’re very proud to introduce their design collection to Nest.co.uk and in celebration of this, we caught up with the CEO of Two.Six to learn more about the brand and its influences.
Can you tell us a little bit about Two.Six and how it all started?
Two.Six is a Portuguese furniture brand and design editor divided into two segments: Two.Six Design and Two.Six For Kids. Our design studio favours simple lines, hot colours, and clever details. Think touchable stripes of lacquer and quirky fabric accents, combined with handsome natural wood, of course. Two.Six produces timeless pieces that assume, however, a leading character and that are functional and of high quality. Aesthetically rich and challenging for its creativity, the Two.Six collection is made of versatile objects that naturally coexist in eclectic environments. Two.Six was born the 26th of October 2012. It's our project, our dream. We are proud of our work as a team. We believe that our products reflect this hard work and dedication and our way of living.
Two.Six is based in Portugal. Can you tell me how your surroundings have had an impact on the company and its ethos?
Portuguese architecture from Souto Moura and Siza Vieira influences our work. Simple lines, clever details.
The Two.Six collection features lots of bright colours. Is this something that is intentional, or something that happened organically?
Two.Six is colourful energy so, it happened organically. Here, we are happy people, with smiley faces and colourful minds. We are proud of this. It’s amazing having people from different countries using our products. We want to be a part of their lives, inspiring their days.
Where do you look for inspiration?
At this moment we have collaborations with designers from different countries. Each designer comes with a point of a view, a background and a story. This is so inspiring!
You have worked with some exciting names in design, including Cedric Bernard and Tim Defleur. Do you have any other exciting collaborations in the pipeline?
Yes, we do! At this moment, we are working with Silvia Ceñal (Spain), Marco Gallegos (USA), Tim Defleur and Cedric Bernard (France) and Portuguese designers Cristiana Macedo, Ana Fonseca and Domingos Ferreira. But we will introduce new products designed by 5 new designers! We are super excited about these new collaborations and partnerships.
Two.Six is becoming more and more widely known both nationally and internationally. Where do you see the company in 5 years time?
We will introduce new products in both collections: Design and For Kids. We will continue working to have sales representatives in different countries. And we will continue our work to surprise Two.Six clients. We look to create links for life and we believe in lifetime relationships.
