DIGITALAB is an architectural office, design studio and creative lab, focused on both generative design and digital fabrication. It is a young, multidisciplinary practice led by Ana Fonseca and Brimet Silva, that develops projects in several fields : product design, art installation, interior design, architecture and digital research.
Digitalab are committed to employing new technologies in the production of forms and spaces, exploring strategic combinations between generative processes (Computational design) and digital fabrication technologies (3D printing, CNC, laser-cutting and robotics). Their goal is to explore the potential of digital tools as creative weapons to transform pixels into atoms, and virtual processes into physical objects and environments.
Motivated by experimentation and innovation in the development of leading edge ideas, a collective of three young creatives was brought to life with the purpose of design beauty.With a multiplicity of international experiences, this collective drifts across a range of design disciplines employing
a common set of skills and values while exploring new techniques and technologies in the quest of unique design solutions.Working close since 2015, the collective is composed by Ana Raquel, Bruno Martins Pereira and Gil Pedrosa.
Designer and Art Director, Toni Grilo was born in France in 1979. Graduate by the École Boulle in Paris in 2001, he immediately goes to Lisbon, continuing to develop projects in France. At the end of Europe, finding its roots, he discovers a rich industrial and craft country, and is obsessed by the beauty of technical processes and materials.
After various collaborations, he decides to stay permanently in Portugal: he founds in 2005 a first agency, Objection with the designer Elder Monteiro, but in 2008 he opens his own studio, creating products, furniture and scenography.
