“Brazilian design, represented by big names such as Joaquim Tenreiro, Sérgio Rodrigues or Oscar Niemeyer is being rebound with a new generation of designers who, through their talent and innovation are beginning to give international market a new breath.
That is why we decided to choose among this generation of young talents three young designers who are not afraid of trying new experiences, forms and materials and add to contemporary design their originality.
Brazilian culture, intuitively, tends to adapt to new challenges of life without realizing it.
Brazilian designers are able to re-invent new usage to new materials – which are sometimes true works of art, with a very special beauty, directly related to their imperfections.
Ricardo Fernandes gallery is honoured to present Ana Vaz, Olavo Neto and Zanini de Zanine, three Brazilian contemporary designers, whose work is based on appropriation of cultural elements revisited.
These original and innovative designers are certainly great representatives of Brazilian identity.” (extract from the text by Ricardo Fernandes)
