Expression through drawing begins early in your life, putting on paper the creativity exposed by the influence of different aspects, both professional and abstract. This channeling spills mainly into the contemporary stratum, where it finds the solid surface on which to base its creations.

Seeking to combine the creative emotional part with the rationality of production and the entire universe that surrounds product development, he specialized in engineering, bringing this complicity that allowed him to see the production chain in order to objectify his inventive thinking. The interest in the industry then gains intensity, having worked in large companies in a professional scope for years. After this strategic period of industrial experience, he started to create his own brand.

Modern lines and clean design characterize the shapes portrayed in the furniture by the designer, combining the minimalist and neutral concept with the Brazilian uniqueness, present in the curves and materials used. The main inspirations refer to nature, films, music, architecture, not limited to something, but rather try to bring the point of view on certain aspects.

Among the worked materials, wood and steel make up the tangent elements in their projects, with wood being relevantly predominant, of extreme authenticity, as it has the ability to determine unique characteristics for each piece, with a living identity of resistance, tone, density, enabling the exchange of energy with the user. Steel gives cold and solid modernity in contrast, both working together in the modern concept in order to resist physically and conceptually through time.

Del Savio believes that the furniture needs to cause some kind of emotion to the user, using functionality and elegance, but without clashing with the whole. This position gives the work purity and simplicity, highlighted in its contemporary design.
