How is a piece born? Where does inspiration come from? The idea of this piece is to show that nothing is by chance, every detail of a Yankatu work has a raison d’être and that it is born from a construction made by many hands, many stories, many emotions. It is the essence of a feeling, translated into something tangible. It has soul.

The “Oca” Closet welcomes you to Xingu, its traditions, its people. A people that welcomed me and liked the idea of us working together to bring to life pieces that respect their knowledge and value their history. Yaritsu Waura, Kayanaku e Kuyawalu Aweti, Pakuiura, Paipualu, Wayuni e Kuyawalu Mehinako took turns weaving the mat that was incorporated into this 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. All of that under Maria Fernanda’s attention and coordination so that when it arrives in Sao Paulo she will be able to change the way we used to see it, giving it a privileged place.

It’s a love story and a real story, showing us 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

Curated by

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.
