Saulo & Olivia
Since 2012, Saulo and Olivia works around shape and object's materiality.
"Our approach is to go further into the quality of shape, sensibility for proportions and combine elements with a pinch of storytelling to bring special warmth through objects."
Bicolter is a designers team made up by Olivia Salcedo and Saulo Santana. In 2012, the spanish design duo set up their own studio after graduating with Master's degrees in Product Design.
Since the beginnings Bicolter collaborates internationally with companies to design new projects. They work across artifacts mainly furniture, lighting, small objects and products.
The word Bicolter is more than the studio's name, it has a meaning that expresses how a progress can be achieved using dialogue and reflection. In their design process Bicolter practices a dialogue between intangible and tangible languages. The team try to discover singular possibilities of understanding objets by questioning until find the right "chord". The continuous challenge of their projects is to achieve a functional synthesis. In proposing new lines of thought, the goal is to obtain real improvements in the link between people and objects.
Bicolter is focused on researching culture themes, the consciousness of object's meaning and how do they work.
Our aim is work in close collaboration with companies around the world to make objects that bring stories into people life.
