pedras, tiras, clara and bloco by OVO
são paulo-based designers OVO (luciana martins + gerson de oliveira) have presented several new pieces of furniture for design weekend, brazil's first festival to promote design and its connections with art, architecture, urbanism, decoration, social inclusion, business and technology. the collection showcases four different lines: pedras, clara, tiras and bloco.
pedras, which means pebbles or stones in portuguese, is a modular sofa which combines several volumes and surfaces into a single piece. the long linear item is accented with red, pink and yellow fabrics to add a level of playful to the line. tiras or stripes is a bed with thin segments across the frame creating a detailed focus on horizontal direction.the elements range in size, shape and color to create a custom atmosphere.
