Estúdio Bloco A is a creative studio focused on furniture design founded by the brothers Ney and Igor Almeida. Growing up in an edifice block named “Bloco A” in a complex of buildings in the city of Teresina,  in the northeast of Brazil, the brothers discovered an early passion for creativity and artistic expressions. In their childhood, Bloco A served as a space of freedom and acceptance where they both were able to experiment with their inventiveness and build the foundation of their artistic references. Today, based between Paris and Teresina, the Estúdio Bloco A represents to them a place to work and to share their imagination.
Ney Almeida was born in Piauí, a state located in the northeast region of Brazil. He pursued his education in Interior Design in his hometown, Teresina, before moving to Rio de Janeiro to study Furniture Design at the Istituto Europeo di Design. Subsequently, Ney joined the Masters in Product Design at the prestigious Istituto Marangoni in Milan, Italy, honing his skills in the field. His passion for design led him to participate in the third edition of the exhibition Novos Talentos Brasileiros – Design e Arte held in Rio de Janeiro.
Igor Almeida began his academic journey in Architecture and Urbanism at the Federal University of Piauí, later graduating in Performing Arts from Casa das Artes de Laranjeiras in Rio de Janeiro. Currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Dance at Université Paris VIII in France, Igor has an insatiable curiosity for art, architecture, and design. 
The Brazilian duo seek to blend their artistic and cultural references into their design pieces.
