Description

Lagoa is part of Joias, a project created by three Belgian designers and one Belgian curator who spent three weeks living and working together in Santa Isabel, an island in the magisterial setting of the Brazilian Delta do Parnaíba, one of the three largest deltas in the world. Like the Nile and the Mekong River, it has a unique ecosystem and Parnaíba is the entrance to this natural paradise.

Amongst all the jewels this North Brazilian region has to offer, the Carnaúba-palm is the one that shines the brightest. With its elegant-dancing leaves it radiates pure natural glamour. Besides being beautiful, the Carnaúba is environmentally and economically vital for the region. Every single part of this ‘árvore da vida’ is used for a incredibly diverse range of products, from construction materials to computer chips, from medicine to artisanal objects.

The ‘joias’ of the project are the fruit of a co-creation process with the artisans of Ilha Grande de Santa Isabel. In the objects, made out of the different parts of the sun-dried fibres of the Carnaúba palm tree, the artistic concepts of the designers merge beautifully with the diverse crafting techniques of the artisans. Lagoa is one of the silent but sensual witnesses of this exuberant, cultural dialogue.

The designer

Profile Photo
Linde Freya
Product and material designer Linde Freya Tangelder (6-10-1987) is born in The Netherlands, and raised with Brazilian-Dutch background. By this, her interest for materiality and wealth in cultural objects became alive. After her study at the Design Academy Eindhoven and work experiences at the Campana Brothers in São Paulo and Studio Unfold in Antwerp, she started her designstudio Destroyers/Builders in 2015. With her focus on materiality and sensibility she strives for sensory relevance and cultural value in detail and in bigger scale. She opens the traditional usage and knows how to bring daily objects closer to our senses. The studio takes on projects that range from commissions from cultural institutions to private projects, and extends across the realms of both product and interior design. In all of its work, whether residential or cultural, the studio focuses on tactility and materiality, engaging and exploring the sensory way humans process the world.
