Guilherme Wentz, an emerging young designer, has quickly accumulated awards: the iF Design Award, Museu da Casa Brasileira, and Idea Brasil. In 2016 he was named Rising Talent at MAISON&OBJET Americas and in 2017, won Talent on the Rise and was finalist in Accessories at the first Casa Vogue Design Awards.
The debut lighting and accessories collection from his eponymous São Paulo studio includes hand-blown glass, wood, marble, and brass that explore concepts and shapes found in nature. He juxtaposes delicate with strong materials for unconventional results, seeking concepts for a better future.
Guilherme said, “I try to bring lightness and simplicity to my designs…casualness most interests me. There is a casual—yet complex to explain—lifestyle in Brazil and it is expressed in my work in a very subtle way.” Guilherme was honored to be the third designer represented by Sossego, saying he had long been inspired by the work of Aristeu Pires and Domingos Tótora.
