The “Rococó Dresser” is made in solid pink cedar wood carved by the craftsman Rondinelly Santos (Tiradentes, MG), specialized in sacred art. The flowing design of the acanthus scrolls and leaves comes alive through the notch and runs through the five drawers of the dresser, uniting them subtly, creating an optical effect that makes the wood look soft.
Entirely made of solid pink cedar, the dresser recovers, through the art of carving, the influence of the Rococo period in Brazil. Volutes, acanthus leaves, and flower wreaths gracefully permeate the drawers, awakening our gaze and the desire to touch it. A multifunctional piece with a timeless design that values the Brazilian artisanal work.
This is part of Yankatu’s Artisans collection. To create them, Maria Fernanda Paes de Barros researched the Brazilian colonial traditions in the historic city of Tiradentes, Minas Gerais.
