Sao Paulo-based designer Brunno Jahara has unveiled a new collection of scrap wood furniture called Neorustica. Produced by NDT Brazil, a local furniture factory that specializes in working with wood leftover from construction sites, the line of 10 tables, containers and benches pay respect to the countryâ€™s rural background. Each Neorustica piece is named after a shanty town or favela in Rio de Janeiro, where Jahara is from.
Sustainability runs though every aspect of the collection. From the press release: "The varnish chosen is non toxic and water based paints were used. They will be sold in scratched white, scratched black and multi-colored. The inside material of each container is made of a special laminate made out of recycled PET bottles. This laminate is both durable and easy to clean."
