About João Faria : João Faria is an architect from Northern Portugal. After an 18 year activity in architecture and teaching, he as devoted his time to designing objects that really meant something for him. Emotional Objects is born from this passion. He designs objects for his needs and hopes that someone else likes it too. Objects are created from this need and then, design is taken to it's limits, without compromises. João makes its own prototypes and tests its ideas and solution like a sculptor. After testing one or several solutions, its time to choose the best artisans to make it feasible. Manufacturing its always very limited, mostly due to the design characteristics. First of all, its a labor of love.
