Description

Domingo Tótora’s “Vereda” 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


Domingos Tótora

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.

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.
