Animals furniture collection by Albus

August 13th, 2013 by retail design blog

Henrique Steyer, 33 years old, is one of southern Brazil’s most active architects in the contemporary scene. He signs residential and corporate projects that have been published in over 25 countries. Steyer now releases his first collection of authored furniture, product lines with creative and original inspirations. The pieces have a strong ergonomic and constructive rigor, excellent woodworking and absolutely cool shapes, inspired on Brazilian identity, architecture and art.

Part of Brazil’s richness lies in its lush fauna. This is a vast source for creating furniture with an unusual design, that stands out in a market filled with cartesian options. By working with typical animals of the Brazilian fauna in a playful and spirited way, creating a renewed curiosity about local culture, Steyer heightens the senses with tables shaped as monkeys, anteaters, capybaras, alligators and jaguars. The pieces come in diverse sizes and can double as stools. Varied wood types and finishing options, such as high gloss or matte lacquer, allow countless combinations.
