mauricio arruda: lifecycle furniture
Brazilian Architect and Designer Mauricio Arruda's 'Jose Collection' is built with plastic crates and minimal waste in mind. The collection analyzes the the impact of a product life cycle. The 'Jose Collection' is inspired in the traditional street markets and open-air fairs in Brazil. The solid wooden shelving is constructed from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) wood. The wooden sheets are treated with natural carnauba wax, without the use of solvent-based finishes. The furniture’s design suggests a multi-purpose functionality. The plastic containers can be removed from the units, allowing people to store and transport objects, toys, food, clothing, books, bottles indoors or outdoors.
