The amoeba coffee table captures the synergies between two cells and translates them by connecting these wooden barks. These barks are then refined, polished and suspended on hand crafted sculpted legs. The composition of the legs are specific to each table, which is what makes it interesting. The intent is to retain much of the natural shape of the bark and not interfere other than treating it with stain and high gloss. The beauty of the table is the assembly, how each bark comes together to form a shape.
A crystal vase through the use of surface tension of water. It works as making the top of solid crystal mortar shape can have fluid. The flower can be independent by a cylindrical hole in the center. The vase can be filled with water by surface tension, and the border getting fuzzy. In that moment, you will get lulled into the illusion that you can see the water column and flower only as if the vase disappeared.
Iconic design with functional piece of decoration. Cacto was made to fullfill the space with irreverence and humor. Where there is drought there is also beauty, and it was from there that the studio was inspired to create the Cactus. After all, the studio's greatest inspiration, the master Luiz Gonzaga, was already saying, "Mandacaru when 'blazing' in the drought ...". A design accessory that intrigues, delivers robustness in its shape and traces in a playful way the dry scenery of the Northeast.
Amoeba Wall's design is inspired by the fluid forms and mechanisms of amoeba. It is primarily used as a tangible interface to allow users to achieve efficient workspace reconfiguration and dynamic lighting at the same time. The walls will autonomously shape the room around users such as creating small individual offices, open co-working spaces, and private meeting spaces, responding to their needs. Also, it can also form responsive art installation like an endless maze, or a dancing wall that follows the surrounding music.
The Hearth is designated for city bikes. Its function is intentionally hidden into the interior accessory. Even though it looks very light and airy, it can really carry a lot thanks to its shape, which will release the weight equally on the wall. However, functionality remains unchanged. The hanging of the bike is dealt with in a very sophisticated way - the bike slides itself into its ideal position and you don't have to worry about hitting an exact point. The Heart has 4 elements, which are in touch with bike, covered by the plastic tubes in the same color and width as metal weldment.
