Collection of aluminium vessels and lampshades by Jahara Studio
During this year’s Valencia Disseny Week the Bazilian designer Brunno Jahara presented his beautiful collection of colourful anodised alumnium vessels and lampshades within the ‘Uniedo Puntos’ exhibition. In the impressing old building of Valencia University the exhibition showcased the most recent works of Latin-American and Spanish designers with a clear focus on sustainable materials and processing. Brunno Jahara’s collection was inspired by a percussion beat used in carnival parties – ‘Batucada’.
“In Brazil, people play instruments made of tins, aluminum pots, and other alternative materials”, the designer explains.
