Born and raised in Porto, Ana Areias and Raquel Rei studied graphic design at the Fine Arts Faculty of Porto’s University. The close contact with other art forms, made them realise soon the interesting relationship of a graphic approach to an object. Since then, they nurtured their love for objects. From traditional to contemporary, from artistic to highly functional, from minimal to kitsch, objects shape everyone’s life and routine in many ways. Madre team loves to design essential objects, that look for the comfort and joy in the quotidian moments.
