Industrial designer Daniel Caramelo graduated from the Lisbon Faculty of Fine Arts in 2002, after which he spent 3 years in Barcelona, collaborating with, among others, azuamoliné. Upon his return, he started his studio with Bárbara Fachada under the brandname Linhabranca. A founding member of Diverge Design, where he heads the design department, he continues to develop his own projects, which have been produced, published and exhibited nationally and internationally. An analytic eye and an ability to streamline shapes while strengthening function drive Daniel's design approach. Developed for Portuguese coffee brand Delta, his espresso machine Qosmo is a good example of his ability to construct high performing designs with boldly sparse lines.
