Rufo

Designed by Studio Pedrita.

Rufo

Rufo is all bam and no noise. This young percussionist's dream is guaranteed to entertain while keeping the peace with parents and neighbours alike.

An alternative take on the acoustic properties of cork (known for its excellent insulation capacity), Rufo introduces a softer soundscape in the shape of a near weightless, smooth-surfaced drum.

  • Three drums produce different sounds in a surprising range, but never loud enough to play on anybody's nerves. Do I hear a soft jazzy rapping? D&B beats? Heavy metal bashing? Drum roll please: with Rufo, the playground, living room, car seat or restaurant table are your child's stage.

Pedrita

Pedrita is Rita João and Pedro Ferreira. Both are Design graduates from the Architecture Faculty of Lisbon's Technical University, having also studied at TU Delft (in Rita's case) and Politecnico di Milano (Pedro). They joined FABRICA in September 2002, where they would head the 3D Design Department in 2004. Returning to Lisbon the following year, they founded Pedrita studio and have since been developing a myriad of projects in collaboration with creative structures, individuals and clients from all over the world, including TAP Portugal, Ordem dos Arquitectos, Camper, EXD, Movélpartes/Sonae Indústria, Central de Cervejas/Água de Luso and Amop. Inspired by Portuguese traditional forms and techniques, Pedrita's work casts an inquisitive look on material culture - past and present - in projects that are candid and quietly eloquent.
