Description

The “Oca Closet” welcomes you to Xingu, its traditions, its people. A people that welcomed designer Maria Fernanda Paes de Barros and liked the idea of working with her to bring to life pieces that respect their knowledge and value their history.

At Kaupüna Village in Xingu Indigenous Territory, MT, Brazil, artisans Yaritsu Waura, Kayanaku e Kuyawalu Aweti, Pakuiura, Paipualu, and Wayuni e Kuyawalu Mehinako took turns weaving the mat that was incorporated into the piece. They used cotton threads dyed by Mattricaria, from Brasilia, with bark and leaves from trees harvested by Kulilkyrda on the outskirts of the village, creating a Xingu’s color chart.

It’s a love story and a real story, showing that it is possible to innovate and maintain tradition at the same time. That it is possible to add without losing the identities of the parties. That we can overcome challenges together and use technology to our advantage to bridge distances when it is not possible to be together.

About the designer


YANKATU - Maria Fernanda Paes de Barros

My motivation comes from my soul and flows openly, on my life and in my work. I love what I do and I do it with intensity, I live every moment and I transmit all this emotion. In each project I immerse myself deeply in the region, in their craft and in the lives of the people who make them, it is a dive governed by research and by my soul, guided by the heart, done with respect and with the rhythm dictated by time. I get transformed and provoke transformations, and these atitudes reflect in the surroundings and beyond. I believe that design and art are one of the ways to value and eternalize the ancestral knowledge of Brazilian traditional crafts and the importance of nature around us, and so I use all tools that I have to create a quilt of infinite possibilities, full of feelings. Through Yankatu I expose not only my work, I bring with me the dreams and works of the artisans and instigate new dreams. The tangible part of this work are the pieces that intertwine my touch with the lives that share their moments with me. The other part, immeasurable, is in continuous development, in a mixture of art and freedom, with no date to finish. It is a continuous development, in a relationship created around respect and trust. My desire, to be able to do this as long as I live.

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
