La Boca inspired Tables + Marcela Casarotto
Marcela Casarotto is a 23 year old Brazilian artist who just graduated in product design. We find the furniture set she sent us charming and original. Here is a description from the designer: “The project proposed the creation of a set of residential auxiliary tables using the colorful district of La Boca (Argentina) as semantic reference, searching for meanings attributed to it and reflecting them on the product through its esthetic and symbolic functions. With the refining of the selected alternative, a prototype side table was produced in order to verify characteristics related to the dimension, volume, materials, ergonomics and functionality. The proposed product allows the consumer to assemble it at home and select the colors for the finishing, making it part of the environment it’s inserted in a pleasant and humorous way. The prototype is made with mdf, hardwood and PET finishing.” The last photo of the post is taken in the La Boca district, Argentina- the designer’s inspiration source.
