Escada Carvalho

When he received the invitation to create a different ladder for a house on the beach of Itamambuca, Ubatuba. Hugo França felt challenged and with his creativity sharpened. He wanted something that was new and at the same time had its trademark naked nature as the protagonist.

Hugo França suggested a tree that was already fallen in the vicinity to serve as a structure to the groove of the steps. He went to their field and after a month of searching with the help of a resident of the region, located in the exuberant local Atlantic Forrest, a monumental Angico Preto, with organic forms and robust structure.

Meet the Creator

Hugo França was born in Porto Alegre in 1954. In search of a life closer to nature, he moved to Trancoso, Bahia, in the early 80's, where he lived for 15 years. There, he realized the degree of waste in the extraction and use of wood, the experience that guided his work. Since the late 1980s, he has developed "furniture sculptures", an expression used primarily by the critic Ethel Leon and adopted by the designer for his precision in describing the production he performs from forest and urban waste - trees naturally condemned by the action of inclement weather or by the action of man.

The pieces created by the designer are born of a creative dialogue with the raw material: everything starts and ends in the tree. She is your inspiration; its shapes, holes, cracks, burn marks and the action of time provoke its sensitivity and lead to a carefully chosen design, a minimal intervention that generates unique pieces.
