«Even though people become more sophisticated each day, there is still a need for authentic and human experiences, and we believe this involves greats moments as parties, dinners or a simple cake baked by grandmother.»
NDT.design was founded twenty-two years ago in a small town of São Paulo’s state. A city that has about 15.000 residents, hidden in the heart of Brazil, where people walk around or ride their bikes, where is very normal to see someone riding his/her horse among the cars. I have learned a lot from this lifestyle, and my inspiration comes from my experiences. There is so much pleasure about being around people who live in a simple way and are extremely happy with the little miracles of every day. When I created NDT.Design, I was thinking about the best way of providing that type of feeling with my work.
NDT.Design is currently located in the USA, in Florida, where we sell our products on e-commerce such as www.fab.com, www.wayfair.com, www.houzz.com, www.etsy.com, and www.amazon.com. Besides that, we are always looking for important exhibitions such as Maison&Object America in 2016, at ICFF 2016. At the end of last year, we have participated in the design Miami/Art Basel. Now, on May 21-24, we are going to show the NDT.design studio in ICFF New York. All those participations bring us the certainty that we are in the right way.
We have unique and original lines of products developed by Ricardo Rodrigues, the designer, and owner of the studio. My part of the work is bringing a dash of European modernism and an influence of the American’s minimalism on each piece. Our style is synonymous of simplicity with a colorful approach to home living. Our products are developed in aluminum with details in leather and wood 100% renewable resource.
Even though people become more sophisticated each day, there is still a need for authentic and human experiences, and we believe this involves greats moments as parties, dinners or a simple cake baked by grandmother. So, yes we think that our products reflect a possible reaction to current trends.
