The material reveals itself for what it is: blunt and cold. Its choice and processing are purely functional. Volumes float light. Freedom in living the relationship with the construction is fundamental. These are the cornerstones of paulist thought: an undercurrent of brutalism that developed in Brazil.
From here we start designing a piece of furniture that is defined by its user. Lina tries to find the essence of itself. A monolith made up of 4 slabs sewn together becomes a seat or a small table or they can be stacked and create a modular freestanding bookcase. It can be assembled and disassembled by playing with the strings that join it. The rigid forms are in contrast with its fluid spirit
