Artist Statement

Designer Paulo Goldstein, known for his work in the field of conceptual design, evolves the discourse of repairing and reinterpreting randomly found objects to explore an even more primordial element in his work: form.

The designer rethinks the reasons for his interest in certain objects, both iconic and banal, attributing to this aesthetic aspect the reason for the greatest fascination.

Current research addresses this aspect of their creative process – the constant practice of investigation and inventiveness to transform norms, mechanisms and functions from the enchantment of the object, where the result is as important as the exercise itself.
