Cacique Chair, Brass Limited Edition - Contemporary Outdoor Furniture Design

About

Cacique is a brushed brass structured chair with nylon ropes woven around as a mean to resemble an indigenous feathered headdress, more exactly, the ones made by the Bororo Indians. As concepts and ideas go along with the products they originate, this chair aims to bring to a broader audience and demistify the hundreds of indigenous cultures that live with the Brazilian society by looking like a headdress, which makes one think about this issue. Form follows the culture; in this case, the Bororo culture which can read up a headdress like pictograms that alocates one in a clan, his position in that subculture, his duties, past, present and possibly, his future. Thus, manufacturing one of this takes lots of knowledge since some feathers are forbidden for some clans, but at times might be used- or not. It always depends. In addition to that, since the Bororo society is divided in two halves, so are the headdresses' forms, complementing each other when their bearers meet and interact. Being this principle so important, it is represented in the Cacique chair with some help from perspective: in the front view the watcher sees one form, whereas from the back, the form changes and it's not the same. Clearly, these bits of knowledge above are just a tiny fraction of the Bororo culture that the Cacique chair bears with it, but even this little piece of information can change one's mind about the Brazilian indigenous people, and at the end of the day that's why design matter.
