Claudia Moreira Salles graduated in 1978 at the Escola Superior de Desenho Industrial (ESDI) in Rio de Janeiro.

Parallel to this she started developing more authorial projects relying on craftworks specially in wood.
Text from Edwin Heathcote : " Inherent in her designs is both the profound respect for the wood that comes from living and working in a land of rainforest alongside a minimal modernism and a desire for the structural clarity and clean geometry of Mies van der Rohe that comes from working in a country of megacities and modernity. Her designs are imbued with the spatial ambition of architecture and the self-confident presence of building, a revelling in weight and physicality rather than a denial of mass or the tortured structural acrobatics so characteristic of much modern design.
This is furniture as architecture, determining the space around it through presence and absence, surface and void.

Luminária Orecchiette | Design: Cláudia Moreira Salles para Bertolucci.
“As luzes possuem mecanismos independentes, de modo que podem ser manuseadas separadamente. Além disso, há a alternativa de utilização de dimmers, o que amplia o conforto e as suas possibilidades de utilização: para baixo o ambiente se torna mais intimista e para cima se torna mais iluminado”, explica a designer.
