Since he was a child, architect Gustavo Neves got close to crafting with his grandfather as they made string instruments together. Nowadays Gustavo Neves is pushing the boundaries of the fast-growing, much needed organic furniture.

Gustavo takes elements from nature in their total rawness and adds in complements so that he could be the “co-author” of the work along with Nature herself.

His creations are now part of The Invisible Collection, which features works of art that speak of sustainability and a sense of reconciliation between man and nature.

Gustavo Neves uses only a few, natural elements for his creations and he follows a patter so that the complete work resembles a product of nature. For instance, bronze is combined with crystals and stones, shaping up a conceptual trunk and fruits of a tree.

Bronze is a recurring material in Neve’s works as it is shapable by hand and its neutral color and essence do not clash with the other natural elements that come into play.
