A lavish publication dedicated to Studio Arthur Casas, an acclaimed architecture and interior design practice based in São Paulo and New York.
Arthur Casas has been one of the most prolific and innovative architects in Brazil since the late 1980s. His projects, the work of studios in both São Paulo and New York, can be seen in many of the world’s capitals, including Paris, Tokyo, London, and Lisbon.
Studio Arthur Casas has completed more than 500 projects in different areas, including residential and commercial architecture, public competitions, and interior and product design, in both Brazil and abroad. The firm has gained recognition over the years and received numerous national and international honors such as a World Architecture Festival Award 2015 for the Brazilian Pavilion at the Milan Expo.
Born and raised in São Paulo, Casas is strongly influenced by the city’s cosmopolitan spirit, something that inspires him to stay connected with the design community around the world. This ethos marks all of Casas’s work, which is defined by a very eclectic and ever-changing creativity.
Casas strongly believes that architecture and interior design are inextricably related: he visualizes and embraces the spaces he designs on the condition of including the furniture that was created or chosen for them. Being a craftsman himself, he aims to create simple designs freed from all unnecessary details, imbued with artisanal qualities.
The book features works by internationally acclaimed photographers Filippo Bamberghi, Fernando Guerra, winner of the Architectural Photographer of the Year 2015, and artist Mauro Restiffe.
