Emotional Object # 018: Excentric Office furniture

ExCentric is not just another line of office furniture. This line conveys a sense of imbalance, unsettled, gravity defiant. Volumes and they supporting structure are deliberately misaligned, provoking the user, hopefully making him smile...The reaction is priceless. Watching the people looking to the desk, trying to understand what is in front of them and suddenly smiling is clearly what is expected and rewarding. Composed by the essential elements for an office, this line can be incorporated with some technologies like a computer, personal WiFi or bluetooth, keeping the workplace clean.

João Faria

João Faria is an architect from Northern Portugal. After an 18 year activity in architecture and teaching, he has 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, the design is taken to its 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 it's always very limited, mostly due to the design characteristics. First of all, its a labour of love.

Emotional Objects

“Emotional Objects” is a new brand of decorative objects, born by the hand of an architect, which had its world debut at Maison & Objet Paris, on January 2016. After nearly twenty years of work in the field, in 2012 João Faria created the "Emotional Objects" concept as a way to produce and market his own objects. This brand, composed of different pieces from butter dishes to office furniture or Bluetooth speakers, will produce only 99 objects. Then the project will be finished. With an important component of craftsmanship, the twenty-six objects developed until now take design to its limits, with no compromises and a great attention to detail. The author´s intention is to make objects that connect to people, create a relationship with their owners and provoke an emotional response.
