Gustavo Bittencourt

Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1986 and graduated in Industrial Design in 2009 from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. However, even before entering the University, he already knew what profession to follow, as the influences of his mother, an architect, gave him the certainty and passion to work with Design.

Already in the period as a student, he began to focus on the development of furniture, and soon came the confirmation that he was on the right track, his first pieces of furniture were awarded in important national competitions.

The eternal search for new knowledge, improvement, and his curiosity led him to work with great icons of the national scene such as Zanini de Zanine, Marcelo Rosenbaum, Rodrigo Calixto, in addition to having studied in Italy, at Politecnico di Torino and in 2011 worked at Thomas Heyes Gallery in Los Angeles.

Finally, in 2013, he moved to Petrópolis, a city in the mountainous region of Rio, where he merged his studio with a traditional carpentry shop, creating Atelier Gustavo Bittencourt, where the proposal is to develop, produce and market his projects.
