Nicolle Nogueira
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?
NNEKHW: We met when we were in college. When I graduated (Nicolle), I already knew I wanted to open an office and I invited Katherine to be my partner. We founded NK at a very young age, newly formed and we learned a lot along the way.

FS: Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
NNEKHW: We believe that architecture needs to be made for people. That's why you need to understand the briefing very well to translate people into architecture. We work with residential architectural and interior projects, and with a multidisciplinary team we can also serve the commercial market.

NNEKHW: Generate different emotions in people, create something functional and striking.

FS: How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?
NNEKHW: Thought for people and not just for visual aspects.

FS: When was your last exhibition and where was it? And when do you want to hold your next exhibition?
NNEKHW: Casa Cor Parana 2022

FS: Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?
NNEKHW: Everything inspires. Being in touch with nature, with different cultures, with art, common everyday situations, books. Everything can be the result of creativity, just be always attentive with a curious eye.

FS: Where do you live? Do you feel the cultural heritage of your country affects your designs? What are the pros and cons during designing as a result of living in your country?
NNEKHW: We live in Brazil, and here everything is very warm. However, the city we live in is in the south, where temperatures are the lowest in the country. This culturally makes the houses here have a different design. We believe it is important to always be aware of the place where everything is being developed to follow the culture and meet the demand in an assertive way.
