Meet Rita and Alice
RIMA was founded in 2018 by two visionary and entrepreneurial women - a mother and daughter who share a deep passion for interior design. Despite being a relatively young studio, their combined expertise is extensive. Alice, with over 30 years of experience, founded and managed a successful furniture company, bringing a wealth of know-how to RIMA. Rita, influenced by her mother's design background, initially pursued studies in Marketing. However, after gaining diverse professional experiences in Portugal and abroad, she decided to follow her true passion and obtained a degree in interior design. Her fresh and innovative perspective enriches the studio's projects. Today, RIMA is a diverse, skilled, and dedicated team that undertakes projects of all scales, both locally and internationally.
At RIMA, we strive to have a positive impact on the community, prioritising local and artisanal products, eco-friendly materials, and partners who share the same vision. We believe that change starts from within and that our choices can have a positive impact on the world, society, and the future.
Our projects stand out because we are demanding and strive to exceed expectations. We focus on solutions and seek new ways to do more and better, both in the final result and in the creative process and collaboration with our clients.
