Design inspired by Aztecs, Incas and Mayans.
London based Brazilian designer, Fernanda Brunoro www.fernandabrunoro.com presents her new products just launched last week in Brazil, produced by Schuster http://www.moveis-schuster.com.br/. Last week there were many events and furniture fairs in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Below the furniture manufacturer Schuster’s new collection.
The inspiration came from an archaeological research on various South American civilizations of the pre-Columbian period: Aztecs, Incas, Mayans and Moches. The pre-Columbian culture is characterized by mystical elements, superstitious connections and pagan symbolism. The exoticism of clothing and accessories, the richness of body ornamentation, the sophisticated architecture, impressive mathematics’ field and astronomy were also used as a reference when developing the collection.
Elegant and imposing, the legs of the table were inspired by details of accessories and clothing from the pre-Columbian period. The central part of the top, received a marquetry pattern effect that was inspired by ancient stone walls of this period. This interesting effect was created by placing the wooden grain pieces in an opposite wooden grain direction of the top. The Portuguese word “pedraria” means precious rock.
