Schools of Architecture in Europe, having spent an academic year at the

Joana started her career working at the studio Alvaro
Leite Siza Vieira, in a very international and avant-garde environment. In
2003, Joana moved to Madrid, where her work encompassed residential and winery
architecture and interior design. The year 2009 brought a new shift to the San
Francisco Bay Area, where Joana started her own interior design company,
mixeDesigns. In 2015 Joana began her collaboration with animovel, sporadically
developing pieces in collaboration, such as our Moorea table, an icon of our
“table & chairs concept”.
The anidesign studio, an integral part of animovel,
works on product development and design. The know-how accumulated from decades
of experience allows the technical team to design new products and develop
different concepts whenever possible.
At anidesign, pieces like our Puzzle table were
created and developed with the greatest detail and consideration for
contemporary design elements. This design was created to respond to customer
requests and in an almost immediate response to what the market regularly asks
The technical team is endowed with talent, experience
and this enables the in-house development of unique pieces.
In an ever-changing world, having designers who follow
this course of change allows you to constantly anticipate and launch trends.
