Carlos Motta

As I prepare to build my mach 1 prototype I’m trying to work out the details of the chairs. I happened to stumble upon a range of furniture designed and built by Carlos Motta, a Brazilian designer who is passionate about Brazil and its natural wealth. He makes his furniture using raw materials from renewable sources and chooses sustainable options with ecologically certified or reclaimed wood.

These are all things that I aspire to in my own work; but I also admire Motta’s furniture in its stark simplicity and ergonomic sophistication.
