Brazilian interiors that use organic shapes to challenge straight lines

The rationality of orthogonal forms dominates architecture, despite the grand gestures that have sought to oppose them throughout history. In large-scale production, the right angles, repetition and modularity of the block or the grid of pillars contribute to the efficiency of the construction, while reproducing the same spatial solutions. Unlike buildings, interior architecture can offer alternatives to break this rationality, whether it be partitions or decorative objects.

In general, interior architecture seeks to transform the interior space without interfering with the structure of the building, using furniture, lighting, different materials, joinery and ironwork, paintings, textures, plants. and so many other tools which, combined, give life to a new environment. Starting from the blank canvas that is the built environment, the project often uses organic elements to break up the logic of the room and create a focal point or delineate specific spaces.
