About

This Side Table is a unique piece and makes part of Formigueiros Series. It is made out of an aluminum casted anthill mold, resin, and brass. To create the table, the unknown and unexpected geometry of an anthill was extracted with molten aluminum from the soil. Using these organic forms the piece was designed, always trying to preserve the original aspects of the anthill organic mold, like the incrustation in its earthy environment. To develop the series it was necessary to build a mobile furnace to melt the aluminum next to every anthill found. It was explored an area that contained several abandoned ant colonies. By pouring molten aluminum into the anthills, it was possible to extract incredible and unimaginable forms from these natural molds created by the ants. Unique piece made of an aluminum cast on a real anthill (deactivated), red polyester resin and brass.

About The Maker

O Formigueiro

O Formigueiro

View Profile
O Formigueiro (The Anthill) is the result of the gathering and exchange between 3 designers, who are diverse in talents and techniques. Their distinct strengths are united in the same design process, always creating with their bare hands. Caio Bahouth (27), Lucas Portes (29), and Vinicius Mesquita (27) first met while undergraduate students in Industrial Design at PUC-Rio. The first two studied product design and the last majored in graphic design, that diversity allows the studio to have a wide range of possibilities in the design field. During university, the three designers developed several projects as a team and as time passed, they wanted to start working professionally together. At the beginning of 2013, on their senior year, they decided to officially establish the studio. So O Formigueiro is born. The name chosen was inspired by the living organism brought together by thousands of ants that always work together in harmony, each one with its own function and expertise. Caio, Lucas and Vinicius try to work the same way. The result is a variety of projects and products in different platforms, with their own identity and in constant evolution. In spite of having a short history, the studio has already been part of exhibitions in many cities in Brazil and abroad, such as such as Milan Design Week and Paris Design Week.
