“Iron Grids of Recife” Fruit Bowl
The railings that guard and decorate windows, doors and balconies are the inspiration for this piece. The traditional curvilinear shapes made of iron at the beginning of the 20th century are a staple of the old neighborhoods of Recife, the capital of Pernambuco State in Brazil.
They capture the rigid spiral design incorporated into the eclecticism of the period’s architecture and extract from it the essence for the “Grades do Recife” (“Iron grids of Recife”) collection, composed of vases, lamps, baskets and fruit bowls. The production of these decorative objects,
featuring an intricate tying of colored threads was a creation of award-winning Brazilian designer, Sergio Matos, in cooperation with local indigenous tribes on the banks of the Amazon river.
