Rui Pereira is a product designer born in Portugal. His ceaseless interest in learning from different cultures and mindsets led him to become a nomad: he has lived in Valencia and Milan, where he has worked for Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola and he is currently based in Copenhagen where he works as a design developer for Hay. By working and contacting with different realities he has progressively developed a critical position towards the design industry processes and society in general. His research focus on finding new perspectives and experiences by proposing new product typologies that create an immediate connection with the user and simultaneously raise awareness on relevant contemporary issues.
In his projects, Rui explores the potentialities of the materials and manufacture and makes use of a sharp language to ultimately deliver clear pertinent objects.
