This is a piece of furniture where the hexagonal elements, which can take on different configurations, outline what appears to the structure of a beehive. This is a perfect piece for those who like to play and change the items around as these hexagons can be rotated as you like – the item is absolutely interactive.

The pixellated front of his Bionic Sideboard relies on rotating hexagonal elements strung on rods. When flat they form a solid surface. But they coax the visitor to touch them.

Piurra is named after a child’s toy, a spinning top, that the designer’s grandfather –  a master woodcarver and Gold Leaf applier – made for his grandchildren to play.

Rui Viana says he was inspired by the stories his family told of his grandfather’s prodigious ability to mold wood with his bare hands, transforming wood into beautiful pieces. He pays a tribute to his grandfather with his company name.
