Campana’s brothers -Sustainable design

This week I’m in a Brazilian mood… and you are going to see why…

Last week I saw a documentary about this two Brazilian brothers , Fernando and Humberto Campana, one of them is a lawyer and the other en architect and both present us great designs with non-traditional and recycled materials. They design mainly sofas and chairs, all of them very smart made.

As they said in the interview, living in Brazil let them play with lot of colors and materials and techniques they saw with local artisans.

Here I’m going to show you some models, but don’t miss their site an example of quality.

Lately I’ve found myself very worried about all the trash we are making… and I have decided to keep all the boxes, bottles and pots..; so I realized that sometimes we can re use them to keep safe our crafty staff, but then.. the rest… is simply a lot!  That’s why I’m thinking about starting a new project just with recycled materials… I don’t have a clear idea of what to do yet, but I feel I need to do it.

So, here we go…

Sushi

Sushi

This is one of my favorites… full of colors and texture… made with lots of materials and I don’t know why I imagine must be really comfortable sitting down in one of them…

Favela

Favela

This is another of my favorites… it is made of rest of wood and they say is like people of the favelas in Sao Paulo use to make their houses…

Vermelha

Vermelha

It looks very sumptuous but is just rope!! I think this chair might fit in every space… a hotel, a bar, a house, I found it very versatile and fashion..

Banquete

Banquete

The most extravagant… well, I was impressed by the imagination of the authors… but I cannot be sitting over these little creatures… 🙂

What do you think?

Definitions

Hi!! I’m very glad today because I woke up with a lot of clear ideas and definitions… I always thought about explaining what I do and what I feel about and was very difficult, but today everything is clear and I decided to share it with all of you and also write it as a description of my shop.
And the result was this… what do you think?
Hi and thanks for stopping by at my shop. Here you can see one-of-a-kind handmade garments and accesories knitted, crocheted, weaving and recycled with a very trendy style.

Why this name? ( Crear es creer)I know this is more an english spoken community. But why not to learn a little spanish? Crear es creer means : to create is to believe… which I always thought and love. It’s a message full of hope and is the reason I’m here…

Why handmade? because you buy something unique at a fair price and you benefit straight the artisan

Why natural fibers? I prefer natural fibers because it doesn’t go in a process that pollutes the environment. In the case I use another kind of fiber is just recycled material from larger pieces or donations from people who know me and gave me materials they didn’t use anymore to reuse it in something productive.
In the future I’m planning to spin my own yarns and dye them with natural stuff as onion (yes! I’m keeping safe onion’s skin)

Why here? (online marketplaces) I think about these marketplaces as communities and I like the way all of us interact

So, I know its important to be commercial but I needed to express my ideas as well, and I think is very positive…..

    Always I've liked geometry in all the senses: mathematical, philosophical and aesthetic. It has been my main source of inspiration together with the Golden Ratio. Even in the covers of my notebooks there is a rational analysis of composition on the basis of the covers' format with the proportion of size and position of the papers making the collage […]
