Elegance and attention to detail translate into unique pieces that combine fine woods with silver elements, enhancing the contrast between the two materials.

MATERIALS

Wood is our guide. It is the element that leads us on a sensory journey, through colors, veins, smells, textures. More than being part of the process, the wood itself is the process.

All ARC woods are noble, rare, and reused. They are the result of donations, searches, researches, a careful look, and being in the right place. It is a web of relationships built over time, with nature, history, places, people.

Joiners, luthiers, artists, friends-as, partners-as, and sometimes casual encounters around the world.

(Brazil, Italy, United States, Africa, India, these are just some of the countries where our material comes from)

The sense of transience that wood brings with it, as it is a living element, which transforms itself, like us, is materialized in the ARC process. A musical instrument, an antique chair, a renovated floor are some of the stories that ARC shares with you through the creation of jewelry and objects.

BIO

Viola Pineider desenhando sketchs da ARC

The soul of ARC is Viola Pineider, designer and founder.

Born and lived in Florence, Italy. He traveled to several cities in Europe, enriching his own baggage of human and artistic experiences.

His professional training is the sum of his experiences with talented underground artists from the 90s/2000s and 12 years of work in traditional Italian carpentry.

After having practiced for 5 years with an experienced cabinetmaker, in 2010 he took over the management of the activity and carried out numerous restoration work on furniture and interior decoration.

The love for restoring antique furniture, developed the artist's attentive and accurate look and an aesthetic sense, typical of someone who has the ability to combine shapes and colors.

Currently in Rio de Janeiro, he connects with other artistic experiences, in addition to continuing his carpentry work.

With the naturalness of someone who grew up surrounded by art, in addition to a solid technical background, Viola created her own style that combines the creativity of an unconventional world with the elegance and lightness of Italian design.

At the end of 2018, ARC was born, a journey of experimentation and studio with the objective of realizing new expressions in the world of jewelry.

All ARC parts are designed and handcrafted by Viola Pineider, from leftovers and scraps of special wood.
