Designer Eneida Tavares has created Caruma, a collection of one-of-a-kind vases and containers that combine Angolan basket-weaving and ceramics. These vases and containers are inspired by Tavares’ Angolan roots, as well as the region in which she produces her designs and are made using pine needles named Caruma. Tavares seeks to demonstrate the possibility of a relationship between construction techniques and to create an intercultural dialogue with her work. Starting from colors, textures, artisan techniques, gestures and habits of daily life as input to recreate a new landscape through objects and experiences. The mix of shapes, textures and natural materials is so incredible and eye-catching, that these vases will be in the highlight in every space.
