At Hugo da Silva, we understand that every space is unique. Our mission is to create a place where each individual quality that defines a room’s character inspires its own transformation. The goal is to craft and form an authentic ambiance that is naturally warm, functional and welcoming. We do this by taking a holistic and collaborative approach to curate every detail – from concept to the visual realisation of our clients’ brief. Our offering includes bespoke interior, furniture and crafted product design services for a range of commissions including private homes, hospitality and commercial spaces.
Hugo draws on a rich multi-disciplinary background in design to transform any creative vision into a visual reality. His creative approach combines the use of colour, textures and shapes with an authentic mix of cultural references and collective memories. Born in the Algarve, Portugal, Hugo pursued his passion for design from an early age and went on to study Industrial Design at the Institute of Arts and Design Studies (IADE) in Lisbon followed by a post-graduate diploma in Product Design from the Glasgow School of Art. With more than 10 years of experience developing his craft, Hugo has collaborated with a number of award-winning design studios; notably the Lisbon-based creative practice Almadesign and Isao Hosoe Design in Milan.
Hugo moved to London in 2008 to broaden his horizons in the world of interiors and furniture design before collaborating with influential designers such as Michael Sodeau. It was during this period that he established his own Studio where his creative direction has been commissioned for a number of landmark hospitality projects. Whether it is directed towards a private, hospitality or commercial setting, Hugo da Silva employs his intuitive flair to create a unique, welcoming atmosphere that fosters a relaxed sense of homecoming in any context.
