For those who love home furnishings but care about the impact they can have on the environment.

Carlos Motta

Carlos Motta has made a career out of his commitment to sustainability, working with renewable sources and reclaimed wood, which gives his work a slightly rough and rustic quality. His work is characterised by its stark simplicity, elegantly conceived and built.
The Radar Chair, made from reused peroba rosewood and oxidised iron, is named after its familiar shape and ability to rotate 360.


Claudia Moreira Salles

One of Brazils most prolific creators of seating, lighting, tables, and accessories for the home, Claudia Moreira Salless work is also part of the permanent collection at the prestigious Museum of the Brazilian House in So Paulo. The juxtaposition of rough, natural materials with highly finished elements is her trademark. And like so many of them, sustainability is a top priority. The Cantate lamp is inspired by the image of a singer holding a microphone.


Zanini de Zanine

The son of the famous architect José Zanine Caldas, Zanini de Zanine made a point of not living in his fathers shadow. He developed limited-edition objects using old demolished beams and columns that soon became part of the narrative of his work. The pieces are often auctioned in the major collector circles worldwide. The Espalhada table from solid reclaimed ipe wood is one of his masterpieces.


Hugo França

Famous for his design in the natural and untamed landscape, Hugo França creates exquisite one-of-a-kind designs that highlight the beauty of natural forms. The realisation of the waste that is caused by woods extraction and use has guided his work. The pieces created by the designer are inspired by the raw material itself; the forms, holes, cracks, burns, and time marks lead him to a carefully chosen unique design with minimal intervention. One of his pieces is the Caratinga Chaise Longue, made from pequi wood.
