Behind the Brand: FA VO

"Behind the Brand" is our column where you get exclusive behind-the-scenes access to our partner brands and learn more about the people that make our products. Today, we meet Ivo, a co-founder of FA VO.

What is the story behind FA VO? When did it start and what was the inspiration behind it?

The name FA VO was born from a parallelism with the word 'favo', a Portuguese word meaning 'honeycomb'. We looked for a name that has a connection with natural geometric phenomenons and modular features, and at the same time is related to the creation of high quality content.
