Brazilian designer Domingos Tótora grew up in Maria de Fe, a city in the mountainous region of Minas Gerais. With a deep-rooted respect for the environment , he finds inspiration in the landscape and creates objects and sculptures using recycled cardboard. What's unique about his work is the production process:
In a certified sustainable process, recycled cardboard is broken up into small pieces and turned into a pulp that serves as the base material for furniture, objects and sculptural pieces that are molded by hand, dried in the sun and finished to perfection. In this beautiful and labor intensive process, the cardboard which originated as wood, essentially is brought back full cycle by taking on a wood-like quality again. We believe sustainability happens through actions and not words.
