Utopia

01

Sideboard - by DRAMA / Utopia Collection

The expression of ideas or thoughts that tend to differ from what is normally assumed as standard, unconventional. 

The belief in Utopia as a new vocabulary for the generations to come. The expression of ideas or thoughts that tend to differ from what is normally assumed as standard, unconventional. The Utopia Collection is limited edition and entirely manufactured in Portugal, a collaboration DRAMA / October Gallery.

Seen as a visual chaos, the Utopia sideboard with eight drawers arouses the imagination of the most bold egos. Exploring each handcrafted detail becomes a vital mission to feel its essence. Composed by twelve elements, creating an inconsistently coherent harmony. All the lines that gave rise to the final shape of the piece were brought to the front mesh, keeping their original angles, thus becoming a summary of their design.

about the artist

ADÉRITO SOARES

DRAMA Creative Director

A designer who bases his approach and creative thinking on clearly conceptual perspective, giving a great emphasis to the meaning and the visual expression of the form.

“Design came into my life during college. My icons were at the time insolents designers inventing their own world, such as Philippe Starck wearing an armour and Marcel Wenders with his clown nose. I created DRAMA as a platform for my own universe and for other voices that share the same philosophy, or not. A playground for new possibilities. The future is to create another way of thinking about how we can understand and live in our technological, post digital world.”
