Made of solid Brazilian walnut, its structure is composed of two drawers with one internal drawer each, with discrete handles on the upper part that practically disappear on the top. The feet receive bas-reliefs inspired by the indigenous graphics used by the Tapirape native people to decorate bowls.
The pendants that adorn and stand out in the piece, are unique, elaborated with coconut shells and seeds, from indigenous bandoleers of the Nambiquaras native people.
In search of my roots and what the word “pleasure” means to me, I was brought back to Brazilian nature. Pantanal, Amazon, Atlantic Forest, fauna, flora, indigenous tribes ... pure and simple beauty. Of sounds, shapes, colors, scents. Tribes collection was born seeking to reinforce our cultural heritage and enhance our Brazil.
It is inspired by the indigenous graphics present in the gourds carved by the Tapirapé tribe and also by the Nambiquara tribe work in the manufacture of bandoliers and necklaces, using Siripiuna and Inajá seeds and Tucum coconut shells.
The sensitivity of these works contrasts with the strength and robustness of the massive Imbuia. As in life, a subtle balance between strength and delicacy..
Valuing what we have is, for me, the meaning of “pleasure”. It is in the simple things of life, like the color of the flowers, the aroma of the earth wet by rain, the sound of wind moving the leaves, the song of birds announcing a new day, the pure smile of a child.
Small details - which we often underestimate - are what really make the difference.
