He has always been linked to alternative movements, which will help him to question things, to reflect and follow his own thought.>.
This lateral thinking is where its relationship with the design came from. Nelson defines his style as harmonic , playing with simplicity of form and use of different materials that are in syntony . All this, with the purpose of reaching the perfect furniture .

Inspiration and design preferences.
For Nelson, “the design is for people”, what makes him design is to be able solve problems of people with pleasant and functional forms. That is why the design is taken as a constant challenge , and with each difficulty grows even more in search of a solution to create an ideal piece of furniture.
When designing, this designer finds his inspiration in everything that awakens his curiosity, because of its shape, color or material.
On this last element, Nelson considers wood as his favourite material , although his devotion for it does not condition that he likes to work with different materials.
