Organic shapes

Recently I received by email a very unexpected and surprising architecture project created by Ivo Mareines and Rafael Patalano, both Brazilians architects. The house is in Mombaça beach, Angra dos Reis – Rio de Janeiro, which in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful beaches in Brazil.
It’s a contextual project that wouldn’t work in a lot of places for sure. They were spot on taking the risk to build such a different architecture in a beach place. The view and the material choice are impressive.
Another project that I related right away was the Antibodi Chair from Moroso created by Patricia Urquiola. The fabric is sewn in triangular shapes creating organic patterns.
The materials (wool, leather and felt) create petals shapes that can be facing upwards or downwards giving a different look to the chair.
