Curved Benches exploit the flexibility of wood to assimilate the curves of the body. Alluding to a fundamental building system, the benches form a trilitic structure, where two vertical plates perform the base and an horizontal curved one the seating. The elements suggest a subtle balance in which the parts seem just touch each other.
Although composed of few elements the set creates a solid and unexpected visual block. The juxtaposition of the curved plate with the vertical planes generates a slight encounter, marked by a linear shadow at its junction. The project seeks to dialogue with the Brazilian tradition of carpentry through a minimalist language.

The studio is formed by Ricardo Innecco and Mariana Ramos, respectively an architect and a product designer. They were born and studied in Brasilia, a city known for its modernist architecture and urbanism. In 2012 they moved to São Paulo where they worked in relevant architecture and design studios. In 2015, they started to work in collaboration under the title RAIN.
RAIN is an independent design studio which the main activity is the development of furniture, lighting and objects. The studio produces and commercializes its own pieces, working with Brazilian and international design stores and galleries. They also work in collaboration with other brands and in the development of limited editions and installations, in which a strong graphic and sculptural content stands out.
Their work has been worldwide published in medias such as Casa Vogue, Folha de São Paulo, Dezeen, Designboom, Disegno, Sight Unseen, Architectural Digest, Deco Journal China, Milk Magazine, Ignant. In 2018 the electronic magazine Dezeen chose them as one of the "five emerging Brazilian designers to keep an eye on."
The Studio is located in the Barra Funda region of São Paulo, in a space that works as atelier, showroom and, eventually, hosts studio exhibitions.
