My name is Nuno Costa. I'm a 24 years old product designer born in Portugal, currently living in Brussels (Belgium). I started working on my own line of products in early 2007, restoring dumped furniture and recicling all sorts of domestic waste.

Plastiche was my first serious design project - a handmade jewelry and accessories collection exclusively made out of plastic bottles. I called it 'plastiche' because I sculp the plastic with fire and shape it into something that resembles a 'pastiche'.

I love material in all its forms, even the poorest ones, and I try to enhance it by creating objects that lie between art and design.

"Trees are like people - its not like you can just walk up to them and expect to get along" - Josh Leopold

My work is largely inspired by nature and I think that is what draws me to work with natural materials. I like working with found pieces of wood, not only because it is a recycled material, but I also love the idea of taking something that would otherwise be overlooked and turn it into something beautiful and desirable.

All products are handmade by studio UNUNODESIGN. Read Less
