An American born and raised in São Paulo-Brazil, at the age of 17 Camila embarked on a journey throughout the world, experiencing different cultures, people, environments and perspectives in the USA, Europe and Asia.
Her perseverance and originality makes her a multi-cultural designer with her uniqueness transcended into the creative process of conceptual design.
As much as rock-climbing, Camila believes that good design involves common sense, passion, risk and the sensorial experience between the individual and the environment. Most important, good design is timeless.
