About the collection
The Friso collection is designed by Brazilian artist Domingos Tótora. His artworks are made of recycled paper kraft. Domingos Tótora’s creations embody sustainable ideals with natural materials and reflect organic processes and cycles within a fresh, contemporary context. Driven by a passion for preservation, Tótora draws inspiration from natural landscapes to create a collection of home decor pieces and furniture from natural fibres and pigments. Each design is a reflection of the shapes, forms, textures and hues of nature’s landscapes. In 1998, Domingos brought local artisans together into a cooperative that manufactures his pieces. Through this cooperative, he has helped transform the struggling agrarian based economy into one that thrives on the craftsmanship and skill of local artisans.
