Hugo Passos is a Portuguese born, London based designer who works for english design furniture company SCP and before that, as a design assistant at Fredrikson Stallard where he worked on their projects for The Swarovski Crystal Palace, Bernhardt Design, Droog Design, David Gill Galleries, etc. Hugo also exhibited at the 2006 Salone Satellite in Milan and London Design Festival 2011.
Bringing together the principles of good design he learned along the way, and the best of Portuguese craftsmanship, he created the Piet side table, featuring an asymmetrical leg structure in solid walnut with contrasting colored tops in matt lacquer. Available in four colorway, black, red, yellow and blue, the tables display other fine details like the exposed joinery between base and top, which was designed as a key feature, creating honest visual character. Its form and structure appears to change when viewed from different angles in a play with tridimensionality. The Piet side tables are currently available at Por Vocacao, as part of their series of special XMAS colabs.
