Believe to be relevant, showcasing the work of an artist of this caliber, not only by the creation itself, but also for its lasting social commitment and economical in its work as a whole.
Designer, artist and plastic craftsman, née Maria da Fé, Minas Gerais. Dominic's work is deeply rooted in the principles of sustainable development.
His work is a true example of what design should be sustainable. It is sustainable at all levels: from raw material to social aspects and economic.
The process: the raw material used in their work is the mixture of cardboard thrown in the water and glue (Sunday not use the new cardboard, with the sustainability as a fundamental value of his work). So there is a new "material", a backrest which when designed looks like a high quality wood.
The process consists of the following: the box for entering the workshop is dismantled and receives treatment with glue and derivatives of agglutination and becomes cellulose mass moldable. Gets 100% reuse. Cardboard wood and come home, back new wood. The creative process takes place in manipulation and free movement with matter.
Results in a balance between quality and aesthetics generating parts resistant with great tactile appeal.
