Inês Viana was born in Lisbon, in 1995. Although she was raised in Portugal, she studied in an English school, making it one of her native languages. Inês began to study Design on her degree in IADE Creative University, as a broad course, which allowed her to explore different paths. It was when she won a Design contest organized by IADE, called Creative Week, that she decided her path would follow Product Design. She specialized with a Master in Equipment Design at Faculdade de Belas-Artes da Universidade de Lisboa. During this period, she developed a project in partnership with the company Temahome, which offered her the possibility to internship with the company and in 2019, she became part of the Temahome Portugal Design team.
She likes to create simple and functional products, which respond to a necessity and that are in some way conscious; she seeks to differentiate with the use of forms, details and finishes.
Inês wants to create better and more sustainable solutions, which alone might not change the world, but will help make it better.
