Portuguese-born, London-based designer Hugo Passos designs everyday objects that are familiar and enjoyable, both in form and use. Passos’ work is inspired by the designer’s ongoing interest in the human scale of everyday objects.
Without disregarding the artistic potential of design, Passos stays true to his view that designs must first and foremost serve their purpose and “do what they’re supposed to”. While paying great attention to the materials, structure and ergonomics that influence the use and final synthesis of the design, his approach resonates deeply with Fredericia’s core design values.
After working as a design assistant at Fredrikson Stallard, Hugo Passos opened his own design studio in 2012. His products for Monocle magazine as well as other works have been featured at SaloneSatellite in Milan and the London Design Festival. The Piloti tables are Passos’ first collaboration with Fredericia.
With its simple, unadorned silhouette and slender profile, Piloti in Stone exudes a unique kind of elegance. The extra appeal is all about the subtle detailing of the table top´s edge ensuring a seamless transition to the legs which merge into a balanced entity. The impression is a single line floating on four delicate legs. The Piloti in Stone tables all have the same height, which makes them ideal to place individually or together in a space to create a sense of continuity.
