Carlos Motta, 2001

Named after a surfing beach off the coast of São Paulo, Carlos Motta’s "Asturias" line has been a hit in Brazil and abroad for its sharp and rustic appeal for the last decade. By utilizing reclaimed wood and simple lines, that require minimal machine cuts, Motta designed the "Asturias" to have the least environmental impact possible. Suitable for outdoor or indoor settings, the "Asturias" has been exhibited in Milan, at the Saint-Etienne International Design Biennial and won the Planeta Casa prize in 2003 for its sustainable approach.
