FS: Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?

FS: Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
F0: FAHR 021.3 is a combination of people, perspectives, challenges, methodologies, arts and concepts which arise from the vision of two talented architects who believe that there is more to the art that they learned than meets the eye. They invested everything on the development of a new approach: communicative architecture. Surprising in shape, concept and content through a new perspective of communication is what this company promises its customers.

FS: Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?
F0: Our inspiration is often awareness of where we intervene but often arises in one form or material. Our references are some artists, designers and architects that assume new paths risking new approaches. We also love to revisit us in our unconsciousness.

FS: How would you describe your design style? What made you explore more this style and what are the main characteristics of your style? What's your approach to design?

FS: Can you talk a little about your design process?
F0: Our work process starts always generating some discomfort in the idea that we have, so this way we can discover new paths.
