‘A new type of point was developed to the typical and cultural handmade work named Filé in a partnership with the female weavers of the historical city of Marechal Deodoro. It was inspired on the cartesian layout and the form “Z” was born from a truely “alagoano” handcraft. The letter Z represents the beginning of the word Zelo, a kind way to care of this handmade work. This Project values the handmade work as a whole and its result is a covering workpiece full of tradition and made from an ancient manufacturing process of hydraulic floor tiles’ – in collaboration with Tereza Carvalho/

Vai Vem: ‘composed [of] ludic units and made with a certified type of wood and it also allows infinite types of installation. They fit systematically with one another and can be used in various ways just like a child’s game.’
