Eco design objects by Domingo Tótora

August 9th, 2011 by retail design blog

The beauty of Domingo Tótora’s work not only manifests itself in the final product that one might acquire, but in the process itself. From the designer’s philosophy and respect of the environment, the location of the studio and the way the work is produced, all the way to the final product.

Born and raised in Maria da Fe, a city in the mountainous region of Minas Gerais, Brazil, Domingos Tótora returned to his hometown after studying design in Sao Paulo and chose cardboard as the source material for his work that falls between art and design.The surrounding landscape and his passion for nature serve as the sources of inspiration for his work. Starting with recycled cardboard he creates objects and sculptures where beauty is inseparable from function, granting an artistic aura to common everyday objects.
