Design Legends ("DL") had the distinct honour to interview legendary designer Ariane Cristina da Rosa ("ACDR") for their original perspective and innovative approach to design as well as their creative lifestyle, we are very pleased to share our interview with our distinguished readers.
ACDR : My background is in architecture and urbanism (1997). I have a degree in interior design and over the years I have taken courses and participated in immersions in search of constant improvement.
ACDR : Since I graduated in architecture and urbanism most of my work is interior design. I always do a lot of research while carrying out my projects and I try to create really different environments that express the personality of my clients.
ACDR : My creativity knows no limits. In each project I create exclusive pieces for each situation, for each client. Design came naturally to me in the daily performance of my duties as an architect and interior designer.
ACDR : I design furniture and decorations, as well as lamps and small objects.
ACDR : Be persistent, study hard and always improve. Listen to your heart and let the emotion flow.
ACDR : Find simple and unusual solutions for common situations is the hardest part.
ACDR : In my opinion, good design is one that stands out for its beauty, originality and simplicity. A good design brings a positive emotion to people and transforms the environment in which it is found.
ACDR : Good design is always good, it doesn't lose its value over the years.
ACDR : I would love to create limitless environments to vent my creativity. Commercial spaces, for example, are perfect for experimenting with new ways of relating to the environment.
ACDR : Having my own design brand.
ACDR : Persistence. Believing that it is possible, never giving up and taking advantage of every opportunity.
ACDR : Karim Hashid, Philippe Starck, Isay Weinfeld, Sig Bergamin, Kelly Hoppen, Marcel Wanders, Oscar Niemeyer
ACDR : Chaise Longue Rio by Oscar Niemeyer for its elegant, lightweight and extremely comfortable shape. It's a masterpiece.
ACDR : My greatest design is the one I haven't done yet, and that's exactly what makes it great, the anticipation of what's to come.
ACDR : Research, observe, be attentive to the movements of the world beyond one's own navel.
ACDR : I can't imagine anything else...
ACDR : Design is a way of seeing and interacting with the world
ACDR : It may sound cheesy, but my family and my husband have a prominent role as supporters.
ACDR : Persistence
ACDR : Fear of failure and lack of information
ACDR : In the best way possible, in an unusual way, using all the tools at your fingertips.
ACDR : I have so many ideas all the time that sometimes it's hard to choose where to start. One thing is for sure, news is coming.
ACDR : Today? Winning the Platinum A Design Award
ACDR : News always
ACDR : Good design makes people's lives easier and brings positive feelings into their lives.
ACDR : I'm developing a line of furniture, lamps and decorative objects
ACDR : Casa da Barra, (The Concrete House) a project I did from the architectural to the interior details. The end result was a great satisfaction.
ACDR : more innovation
ACDR : For the greatest comfort with the least effort using sustainable materials
ACDR : Sometimes years, sometimes days... it depends a lot on what is being developed.
ACDR : Keep going
ACDR : It is definitely a two-way street. but I think that design invariably sets the trends
ACDR : Assists in the development and improvement of projects
ACDR : Literally whatever is available. In general I draw by hand and then model in some lighter software.
ACDR : Color and texture are directly linked to emotions. The good choice of materials is one that uses these and other subterfuges to achieve what is desired.
ACDR : How can i have one of these?
ACDR : How did I not think of this before?
ACDR : I think collabs are important and I believe that together we can do more.
ACDR : Every situation I experience provides me with material for new creations.
ACDR : The first design book I bought was Starck by Taschen and it left a deep impression on me.
ACDR : Researching a lot, observing everything, going to trade shows, and listening to people.
ACDR : Leonardo Da Vinci
ACDR : Red and turquoise, my house, Florentine steak, spring, desigual brand
ACDR : The first time I wanted to produce a project of mine, I thought I had to do the whole process, from creation, assembly, transportation, delivery, everything. I temporarily gave up on my dream until one day I realized that all I needed was a partner to produce my designs. This took 20 years to happen.
ACDR : When I can finally close a project, with all its details thought out and resolved.
ACDR : I always liked to create and build things, I think it was a good start.
ACDR : I don't usually think about it
ACDR : I'm really passionate about everything I do
