Iris Wall Tapestry

ADORNO

December 2020
Adorno is a digital gallery for the best of collectible design and craft from around the globe. Selected by a network of on-the-ground curators in major design cities, Adorno’s collections provide a unique insight into the world’s diverse creative communities – and celebrate the work of the designers shaping them.
Each collection showcases only unique or limited-edition contemporary works, spanning the fields of furniture, textiles, ceramics, sculpture and design-art. The curatorial approach varies from collection to collection – just as design culture varies from community to community – but every object featured is contemporary in style, experimental in approach, and exceptional in material quality.

“I commit to the materials I work with and the knowledge gained from these relationships cannot be experienced by just experimenting on a superficial level. I think of them as sacred and each one will reveal itself in its own time.”
Eurico Humano,
Designer

Featured products:
Iris” Wall Tapestry—Inspired by the SUN, neutral and natural tones. “IRIS” melts in wool and warm the eyes of the beholder. Woven by the artist entirely by hand, it has organic shapes and different finishes and volume heights.
POMPEI—A the series of column-based objects designed by the couple of artists and architects Matteo & Alessandra – Opere Varie and produced entirely in resin. In the ancient city of Pompei, the artists fell in love with the colors and structures. In particular, they were entralled by the columns and semi-columns used in the past – more as a decoration than as a structure – with double colors, 1/3 red and 2/3 white.
Starting from the reinterpretation of the Pompeian semi-column, “POMPEI” does not present the classic grooves of the structure, but rather small, faded columns that gradually become thinner. These small columns take up half of the perimeter, redesigning it and creating games of empty and full with a strong visual impact. The resin is finished by hand as a stone for a result of 13 pieces, different in proportion and colour, with nuances that, in each layer, immediately recall a different material: from red porphyry to red quartz, from pink Portugal marble to white onyx.
Banco Tronco—In 2018 in São Paulo, Humano presented his first sitting piece, “Tronco”, which is a sculptural object that manifests his relationship with nature. The seat combines three elements: a wood trunk, a pair of bended bricks, and a green rope resembling nature’s green moss.
“Banco Tronco” is an invitation for a paused contemplation, which respects natural time and refers to Indigenous seating and the ritualistic nature of the environment.
The irregular seating is a reminder that stability is to be found within when in connection with the ancestors knowledge.
“Roommates” Coffee Table—A collection of personified furniture pieces designed to intrigue human emotions and change the way how we perceive everyday objects around us.
Alongside the industrialisation of production, the standardisation of design began, provoking a similarity of produced goods, inert or shorter-term consumption, and a monotony of everyday experience. Although industrial and technological achievements are encouraging, the emotional connection between an object and a person gradually disappeared; objects more often became replaced with new ones.
The aim of the “Roommates” project is to question whether it is necessary to give emotional value to objects and how it could change the daily human routine or consumption habits.

BO Armchair—With a strong influence of Lina Bo Bardi’s furniture designs, this armchair has a low and relaxed seat. The 90cm diameter circle gives an aesthetic strength of extreme lightness and geometric purism.
