The Placa Friso is made of repurposed cardboard pulp blended with soil and water. This wonderful piece of sustainable design is designed and manufactured in Maria da Fé, Brazil, in the studio of the renowned designer Domingos Tótora. The flowing lines represent the rolling hills, waterways and coffee fields of Maria da Fé. The relief of the lines interacts with light and mimics the way rays of sunlight move over fields and hills, creating a mesmerising light and shadow effect.
The earth in the area around the Studio Domingos Tótora is coloured brown and red, an element of nature which is reflected in the colours of the Placa and Disques Friso as well.
Totora’s works are sculpted by hand, which makes each piece unique.
