Born in Portalegre in the year 1997 and currently living in Lisbon, the will to build things with her own hands grew since she was a child. Growing up in a small place and with a father that knows a little about almost everything made it happen.
As the images of a cork dollhouse, table lamp, and even a wood cover for a speaker flash across her mind, she pictures herself back then and feels the greater need for innovation. That feeling later led to a degree in Equipment Design by the Faculdade de Belas-Artes da Universidade de Lisboa. This school taught her how to develop concepts, methods, and experiments that would make her ideas come to life. Sofia is currently studying Furniture Design at the Lisbon School of Design and finds herself more and more in love with design every day.
