Interview with Alexandre Kasper

Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
I always liked to create things, when I was a kid I drew pokemon, in my teens, I drew tennis shoes and created stories, I was always connected with that idea
Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
I work alone as a designer, but I have 3 employees working in the engineering and marketing sector
What is "design" for you?
for me, the design has to be expressive, in some way to make sense and develop the user's sensory side.
What kinds of works do you like designing most?
I don't have a preference, I like it when what I'm drawing ties me up in a way that makes me think about him every day.
What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?
the carioca line and the vani line, which I designed for the 2021 launch of CGS Móveis. Both have different inspirations, but similar conclusions, linearizing my sense of designer.
When do you feel the most creative?
when I sleep, I enter a state of pure silicon and my knowledge and observation stand out
What kind of emotions do you feel when you design?
I don’t know how to explain it very well, but it’s like I’m raising a child, so I must give him great love
What makes a design successful?
feeling, when we create something with the purest and most sincere emotional attachment, it is reflected in the commercial field.
When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
the purpose of the product, with the intention of creating it, and the time it took to create.
From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
all, we must be concerned and reflect this in our design, we are the bridge of the final product to the society that enjoys
How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?
I believe that more and more niches will be made, with innovative products and never thought of today.
When was your last exhibition and where was it? And when do you want to hold your next exhibition?
it was Abimad that happened February 2020 in São Paulo, the next one I want to do this year.
Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?
architecture and nature have always inspired me, but I like to look at great names in humanity and feed on their knowledge.
How would you describe your design style? What made you explore more this style and what are the main characteristics of your style? What's your approach to design?
architecture and nature have always inspired me, but I like to look at great names in humanity and feed on their knowledge.
Where do you live? Do you feel the cultural heritage of your country affects your designs? What are the pros and cons during designing as a result of living in your country?
certainly, the great quality of living in Brazil is the cultural diversity that we have here, this is a source of great inspiration for anyone who works with creation. it has no negative points.
What are your suggestions to companies for working with a designer? How can companies select a good designer?
observing their concern with the design created. what ties the designer to the factory is the product created, so part of it gives all the observations made by the factory, look at the care and attention that the designer has with his design.
Can you talk a little about your design process?
I think about design 24 hours a day, for everything I look at I see design and having to understand why every thing created, be it architecture, fauna, flora, design, people ... so that reflects my way of thinking, and when I I stop in pure silence, like sleeping or meditating, the information fits in my mind giving me rational ideas and ways to start a design.
Can you describe a day in your life?
I wake up at 6 am, take a hot shower, make a coffee and start reading a book, at 7:30 am I go to the office and the factory, I walk around the factory to see how the sector works, I go back to the office, and I start thinking about products, left for lunch at 12pm, eat and read again, at 1:30 pm I go back to the office where I keep drawing, if I have any programming doubts I go to the factory to study the product's rationality, left the office at 6 pm or 7 pm, I go to the gym, come home for dinner, and study Spanish, later I go back to reading some more and meditating, then I go to sleep.
Could you please share some pearls of wisdom for young designers? What are your suggestions to young, up and coming designers?
as common as that phrase seems to be, never give up on your dreams, only you know the value of them.
From your perspective, what would you say are some positives and negatives of being a designer?
use your mind to develop experiences, I believe that there is no negative point, when you give yourself to what you love, work becomes pleasurable

I don't have a preference, I like to do everything that generates me emotionally excited.
What are your future plans? What is next for you?
I want to draw more exclusive lines, and work in the architecture sector

dining table that I am developing, where I use the entire system of joints in wood, the idea is not to use screws.

Extended Interview with Alexandre Kasper

Could you please tell us about your experience as a designer, artist, architect or creator?
I started at CGS Móveis at the age of 16, always admiring the factory's designer sector, imagining me one day to be there, time went by and I always kept that focus, when I decided to go to architecture school, it opened the eyes of my boss, who it gave me the opportunity to start in the sector 4 years later i already sign 3 product lines.
How did you become a designer?
what motivates me is to know that we have a lot to explore in the world, we cannot limit ourselves to what already exists, I say this as a form of creation, I am motivated by the need to have and convert experiences into objects.
What are your priorities, technique and style when designing?
I chose to be a designer when I was 5 years old, I really liked the Pokemon design, and one day bored with the 150 that existed in the design, I drew another 150 new pokemons.
Which emotions do you feel when designing?
I am passionate about architecture, I want to make a difference in the environment, project needs and experiences.
What particular aspects of your background shaped you as a designer?
first of all, I’m not a legend, but I’m looking for recognition. this is all a reflection of my desire to learn and do, my advice is to move, act, focus and don't give up.
What is your growth path? What are your future plans? What is your dream design project?
for me, good design is a successful person in the field of quality, knows how to make the product very well done, but does not explore its own emotional side, the designer has to work with emotion and with food and uniting these two factors is only for great minds of the designer.
What are your advices to designers who are at the beginning of their career?
it must be complex of information, not of machining or raw materials, but design when it was with emotion and rationalism it becomes pure and unique.
You are truly successful as a designer, what do you suggest to fellow designers, artists and architects?
because it is what you keep in the most important object of your life, your home.
How do you know if a product or project is well designed? How do you define good design?
faith in thoughts, and observation, my source of inspiration is nature and architecture.
How do you decide if your design is ready?
Hans J Wegner, Sérgio Rodrigues, Jader Almeida, Joaquim Tenreiro, João Teixeira, Nanna Ditzel, Oscar Niemeyer, Paulo Mendes da Rocha, Lina Bo Bardi, Bjarke Ingels...
What is your biggest design work?
From Hans J Wegner to Wishbone Chair, for being one of his first designs, he achieved simplicity in the product and linearity in the information that it reflects with a beautiful carpentry work.
Who is your favourite designer?
i believe that the carioca line and the vani line satisfy me equally as good, they reflect my constant search for product excellence with different inspirations but similar results.
What are your philanthropic contributions to society as a designer, artist and architect?
s the reflection of human feeling along with technological rationality.
What positive experiences you had when you attend the A’ Design Award?
