Says Gonçalves, "Leaves and stalks can live for a long time after the plant completes its circle of life. Even if in a dried plant the bright colors disappear - the beauty remains in its structural details."

"Lunaria, a common garden plant, forms seed pods which then flake away revealing silver disks at the end of its life-cycle."

"The fragile constitution of the flower holds a thin white skin - which is reflected in the production of the 'Naturally Collection'"

"The furniture series is comprised of a delicate black stainless steel structure, which creates the shape of each piece. The combination of wood and a white lacquered metal sheet gives the function to each object - a cabinet, a drawer, a center table, a lamp and a pouf."
