About Catarina Santos : Simplicity is a good word to define her. She believes that life is to be lived with the utmost authenticity, believes that we go further when we cooperate and care for each other. She is important in the sense that we are all important and this expanded vision makes all the difference. It is by example that we help the World to become a better place, and to set an example it is necessary to be very resilient, demanding, focused, interested, curious, flexible and authentic. Life has already shown her that in the end the most important thing is love and that is why she always try to place love in everything that she does. We think that for that reason we care so much about how we want our products to be responsible to the planet, to human, animal and plant life, lighting is a task of great responsibility because it interferes deeply with everyone's life, it has to be always done with great care. We believe that we are managing to move in this direction, in Portugal it is an area where there is still not much information, where people in general still do not know how important it is to live in spaces where there is a careful and properly prepared lighting. We have been trying to do this awareness work through monitoring and demonstration. We believe that it is really important for the future not only of society but also of the planet, to integrate the awareness-raising part in this area, it is no longer enough to just buy, you need to know what you are buying and buy the right thing . Otherwise, we are contributing to a more polluted planet and less healthy people. They believe that as long as their voice is not audible, their talents will not be visible.
STATEMENT OF ART:
For me, art is opening space to bring the soul into the physical world, it is the expression of emotions, of the individual and the deepest thoughts of each one. Everything can be art, as long as it is conceived in this way, with this dedication, it can be a dance, it can be an object, an installation, a painting, it can be telling a story. For me, art is always connected with the interior, with dedication, and is more related to the artist than to the observer or consumer.
Design is more or less the reverse, where what is intended is no longer to bring up the internal and individual issues of whom is designing but of the consumer. It is something that is done with the user in mind, and that wants to make life easier for others, or solve a problem for others.
These worlds mix at the moment when, in order to produce a design it's always necessary to put parts of yourself in the project. I believe that it is possible to be a good artist without being a designer, but that you are not a good designer if you are not a good artist.
