More About RAIN
BABEL 2014 Installation created for the Design Weekend São Paulo 2014, exhibition with the ‘Multifunctionality’ theme. Based on the idea that the utility of a table is directly related to its size, BABEL explored the replication of a matrix in different scales, in search of the unitary and collective interpretation of the pieces.
BROKEN TABLE 2013 The installation originated from the desire to build a table with exaggerated dimensions, to constitute a mark for the castle’s landscape. The table was made split in half, assuming a sculptural character and setting a paradoxical image that is open to speculations about its history. The work was built in wood by the two designers.
CASCADE 2015 Installation ‘Cascade’ alludes the waterfalls of Brazil, using a traditional element of the Brazilian craftwork: beaded curtains. The curtain constitutes a negotiable barrier which is made to be permeated, like water. The work was executed in partnership with ‘Cooperaldeia’, a cooperative dedicated to the social development of artisan women. It is a metaphor of two great sources of Brazilian energy: nature and artistry.
CHAINS 2015 The collection represents a particular look into a rough object, which is often strictly associated to its functional purpose. The supersized links take the chain to a place of contemplation. The chains are a limited series of handcrafted objects made with stainless steel.
