Pictures from the Bienal Brasileira de Design! (Brazilian Design Biennial)
I know I haven't written the last post in portuguese yet but....(I like to write in english better.Shh. Don't tell anyone.)
I particularly enjoyed the exposition on raw materials.
Curauá. It's a plant similar to pineapple, and it's been used make fibers, from fabric to something similar to glass fiber.
Fish skin. It's being made as an alternative material for bags, jewelry, shoes and etc. Also helps with the problem of disposing all the skin that is left from the food industry.
Stoll made of cardboard and fabric (they can take up to 130 kilos).
