About

All the levels of this round bookcase, made of cabreuva hardwood, are permeated by buriti palms yarns with ceramic beads, creating different compositions depending on the angle we look at. All the soft colored shades of the ceramic come from the clay itself, stones and plants of the Jequitinhonha Valley, a Brazilian region known by its traditional craftwork. The designer Maria Fernanda Paes de Barros spent some time there researching their art and the way they live. The inspiration to design this bookcase came from the curtains used to decorate their houses and also by the poetry written by Deuzani Gomes dos Santos, the artisan who received her in her home. This bookcase, and all the pieces produced by Yankatu are numbered and accompanied by its soul, a small book that tells about the inspiration that gave birth to it and leaves blank pages so that its story can continue to be told by those who acquire it, turning it into something more, which does not change with fashion, which does not go by with time. To the contrary, it will move on from a generation to another, from hand to hand, each time with more stories to tell, each time incorporating the lives shared by it. The wood comes from nature, each one is unique, with its veins, knots and tones. Because it is a natural material it suffers with the climate change, so cracks an shifts in color may emerge over time. The wood can also warp sometimes due to a large variation in relative humidity of the air. This aren’t defects on the contrary, all of this is considered normal.     All the handmade details in dis round swivel bookcase are unique and do not repeat themselves, please consult the options at the time of purchase. The Contas Swivel Bookcase can also be made with only 4 niches, 134cm high. Also available at NYC X Design in Brooklyn at the Usagi Gallery, from the 19th to the 23rd of May. As all the pieces produced by Yankatu, is accompanied by its soul, a certificate of authenticity in the form of a small book that tells about the inspiration that gave birth to it and leaves blank pages so that its story can continue to be told by those who acquire it, turning it into something more, which does not change with fashion, which does not go by with time. To the contrary, it will move on from a generation to another, from hand to hand, each time with more stories to tell, each time incorporating the lives shared by it. Brazilian Contemporary and Collectible Design by Yankatu, design + art with Brazilian soul.

About The Maker

Yankatu - design with soul

Yankatu - design with soul

View Profile
My motivation comes from my soul and flows openly, on my life and in my work. I love what I do and I do it with intensity, I live every moment and I transmit all this emotion. In each project I immerse myself deeply in the region, in their craft and in the lives of the people who make them, it is a dive governed by research and by my soul, guided by the heart, done with respect and with the rhythm dictated by time. I get transformed and provoke transformations, and these atitudes reflect in the surroundings and beyond. I believe that design and art are one of the ways to value and eternalize the ancestral knowledge of Brazilian traditional crafts and the importance of nature around us, and so I use all tools that I have to create a quilt of infinite possibilities, full of feelings. Through Yankatu I expose not only my work, I bring with me the dreams and works of the artisans and instigate new dreams. The tangible part of this work are the pieces that intertwine my touch with the lives that share their moments with me. The other part, immeasurable, is in continuous development, in a mixture of art and freedom, with no date to finish. It is a continuous development, in a relationship created around respect and trust. My desire, to be able to do this as long as I live.
