Carlos Motta is a Brazilian ex-surfer and architect who began to create furniture with pieces of wood that reached the coast of Sao Paulo brought by the tide in the 70 years. After graduating in Architecture at 1976 he moved to California where he continued his carpentry studies and two years later he returned to Brazil and opened his own workshop.


He decided to work with recycled wood, demolition waste, pieces from the coasts and rivers and FSC certified wood, and in this way cause a lower environmental impact. Benches, chairs, tables, sofas and other commissioned projects fill your workshops and collections. Its furniture is sold in Brazil, New York, Los Angeles, the Netherlands and Paris.
