Visilek is a Long Island based multifaceted design practice founded in 2014 by cousins Ricardo & Filipe Rodrigues. As a design/build studio, Visilek works on Interior Architecture, Furniture and Lighting design. As a curatorial service Visilek works on sourcing, collecting, and selling unique objects of art & design.


Ricardo was born and raised on Long Island. Ricardo's first mentor was his father, a master carpenter and architectural millworker. Ricardo worked as an apentice at his father's millwork shop while attaining an undergraduate degree in Business. The shop experience triggered a strong desire for Ricardo to express himself creativity. Ricardo eventually earned a degree from Parsons in Interior Design. While at Parsons Ricardo interned with Nicole Fuller, Lumifer/Utopus and Orsman Design. After graduating Parsons, Ricardo worked under Nathan Orsman to develop products the lighting firm would use in their projects. As Visilek's creative director Ricardo focuses on Interior Architecture projects while taking advantage of any free time to design new pieces of furniture.
