Working continuously in the development of objects made of soapstone for many years, ALVA has explored the plastic potential of this material in different ways, in addition to experimenting with other elements. The last result of this long experience presents the PERFUMARIA line, where the stone is accompanied by noble woods, with shapes and geometries that refer to perfume bottles. The collection consists of three different vases, each with a turned wooden lid. The shapes and the contrast between the materials highlight the nobility of the raw materials and the exuberance of each component. PERFUMARIA pieces come with two lids each: one made of wood and one made of stone. These, when used next to the vases, create sculptural and playful compositions.

ALVA is a furniture and object design studio founded in 2012 by siblings Susana Bastos, artist and fashion designer, and Marcelo Alvarenga, architect. Its projects result from the meeting of these two visions, the architectural and the artistic. In addition to the usual rationality and functionality, its creations explore the unusual, the new features and an expressive materiality.
ALVA launched its first line of furniture and objects at MADE 2013, in São Paulo.
After this release, it has partnered with Etel Design, a very important producer and promoter of brazilian design, who fabricates and sells some of its creations.
Since its first release, ALVA’s creations were published on several articles on websites and magazines, national and international ones, such as WGSN, Dezeen, Casa Vogue, Casa Claudia, Wish House, AMC, and the french newspaper Liberation.
