TAAT is a design studio in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Tatiana Queiroz started the studio, she is a jewelry designer who over the course of the years developed an interest in object design. For Gardeco, Tatiana translates natural soap stone, a locally sourced natural rock, into a universal, timeless and contemporary design language, adding brass ornaments as a finishing touch. Her designs combine the rough and the feminine, volume and lightness. She explores the crossroads between object design and sculpture, keeping in mind the purity of form and the balance of the lines.
