About me

Eduardo Brock

Living and working in Luanda all my life, I had to learn and adapt to the conditions and challenges this developing Country and its growing market imposes in my field and in my life.

 

I had the opportunity to have been trained by a number of industry professionals, which means I’ve had many different experiences that have built me into the skilled professional I am today. Now, I’m looking for new challenges and hope to venture even further down my chosen career path, learning as I go.

Less is more

This is a 19th century proverbial phrase. It is first found in print in Andrea del Sarto, 1855, a poem by Robert Browning:

"Who strive - you don't know how the others strive. To paint a little thing like that you smeared Carelessly passing with your robes afloat, Yet do much less, so much less, Someone says, (I know his name, no matter) - so much less! Well, less is more, Lucrezia."

And yet the phrase is often associated with the architect and furniture designer Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe (1886-1969), one of the founders of modern architecture and a proponent of simplicity of style.
