"HUMANITY'S NEXT GREAT EVOLUTIONARY LEAP WILL BE THE DISCOVERY THAT COOPERATE IS BETTER THAN COMPETITION"
PIETRO UBALDI 1886-1972
* propósito *
Refúgio is a furniture design collective, with its own curatorship, which encourages independent production, promotes the exchange of knowledge and techniques, and presents the market with original pieces at fair prices.
Refúgio has an online platform and physical spaces for sales, prototyping and material testing; events, lectures and meetings between designers, architects/clients, suppliers and other interested parties.
We also have partners for branding consultancy: brand positioning, visual identity and content creation for photos, videos, etc.
In addition to aesthetics and ergonomics, Refúgio's curatorship is guided by authenticity, essence, the designers' history and, of course, cosmic curation of positive energies and vibrations.
* MANIFESTO *
Starting from a cosmic vision and universal concepts,
supported by the masterful and inspiring work of the thinker, philosopher
and Italian missionary Pietro Ubaldi, we believe that REFUGE it is born at the dawn of a new civilization, in the era of UNITY.
At a time when the world is shown to be divided into two parts very distinct, separated by almost insurmountable barriers, each supported by its exclusive principles, the era of UNITY it emerges as a breath of hope and compromise.
We realize more and more that true ideals are true
universal and non-private and that the path of social justice, cooperation and solidarity takes shape as a general principle of life and not as a particular political ideal.
