About

Organic looking cuboid shaped bench, designed by artist, designer Domingos Tótora. Made of recycled and painted cardboard, it rests on two simple iron supports, giving it a clean but natural character. About the artist: Domingos Tótora (born and raised in Maria da Fé, Brazil, 1960) creates objects and sculptures where beauty is inseparable from function, lifting common everyday objects and injecting them with the spirit of the beautiful mountainous region he grew up in. After studying design in São Paulo and Inspired by the large amounts of discarded cardboard he saw in the streets, Tótora created a process where reclaimed cardboard is broken down into small parts, transformed into a cellulose plaster and with the use of added water, glue and natural pigments gets shaped into new forms. Although Tótora’s team follows his designs closely, his creations are made by hand and inherently open for little imperfections and differences, purposely adding to the Wabi-Sabi aesthetic of the work. Literature: - Domingos Tótora - Maria Sonia Madureira de Pinho, Brazil 2013, unpaginated - Brazilian design furniture - Marcelo Vasconcellos e Zanini de Zanine, Brazil 2013, p 170. This bench by Domingos Tótora will be packaged and shipped with the greatest care and attention to make sure you will receive the work in gallery condition. Complimentary shipping within the Netherlands.
