Domingo Tótora’s “Terrão” bench is made from the designer’s signature material: recycled cardboard. In a certifiably sustainable process, Tótora breaks the discarded material up into small pieces and turns it into a pulp that he uses as the basis for furniture, objects and sculptures. Each piece is molded by hand, dried in the sun, and finished to perfection, completing the material’s full life-cycle: in this reflective, labor-intensive process, the cardboard, which originated as wood, is essentially brought back to its original state by the designer, who uses it in the same way he would use that organic material.

About the designer

Born and raised in Maria da Fé, a city in the mountainous region of Minas Gerais, Brazil, Domingos Tótora returned to his hometown after studying design in São Paulo. He quickly discovered recycled cardboard and began to use it as the primary source material for his work, which comfortably embraces both fine art and design. Beginning with discarded bits of recycled cardboard, he creates objects and sculptures whose organic beauty is matched by their functionality, granting an artistic aura to everyday objects made from a little appreciated material.
