Chico was trained as an industrial chemical engineer, but after an extensive and years long training in woodworking, he decided to devote his life to his art. In 2017, he and his wife Luiza founded a woodworking studio that is the birthplace of the most exclusive and one-of-a-kind wooden furniture, lamps, folding screens… . In 2021, Chico Margarita started working with Gardeco, creating exclusively for them exquisite handcrafted wooden wall panels.
