Institution: University of Aveiro
Hi, my name is Guilherme Oliveira and I’m 22 years old. I’m on my first year of master’s degree in Engineering and Product Design at the University of Aveiro, Portugal. My master dissertation is about the design of modular objects for furniture in public spaces, case of study Campus University of Aveiro. During these 4 years I´ve developed some products and prototypes for my subjects and classes. My background in design helps me understand that a product needs to fill several purposes: ergonomic, visual, aesthetic, etc.
Motivation for participation:
I think this experience will be very rich because different people have different opinions and ways of seeing things, and I hope to develop my skills and get to know new perspectives and approaches to design. I’m very happy to have this chance to go to Venice and I can’t wait for September.
