On display from August 29 to December 2, 2018.
In August 2018, the Museu da Casa Brasileira inaugurated the “Nossa Casa” panel, curated by Brazilian architect Camila Fix and Dutch architecture and design specialist Jorn Konijn.
With the purpose of raising questions about the identity of the design made by Brazilian professionals, the panel presented 12 proposals for objects thought to be symbolic representatives of “our house”, the Brazilian house; or what these chosen designers conceived, as an idea of objects for the contemporary Brazilian house. Participants come from different regions of the country, in order to present the plurality of Brazilian cultures, accents and landscapes, bringing together works by Ronald Sasson, Inês Schertel, Guto Requena, Carol Gay, Gustavo Martini, Andrea Bandoni, Studio MK27, Plataforma4, Mula Preta, Alva Design and Adolini+Simonini. The scenography was inspired by the project in “Recut Memories”, by Studio MK27.
Installed in front of the MCB restaurant, the panel portrayed, through objects manufactured using the 3D printing technique, the response of the participants provoked by the curators, expressed in objects and prototypes that were also presented at the Design Week in Milan in 2018, inside of the “Be Brazil” program organized by the Brazilian Export and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil).
