Domingos Tótora is a Brazilian designer from Minas Gerais. A characteristic theme in Tótora’s work is that of sustainability, of exploring ways to produce objects with respect for our environment. Domingos is the founder of the Studio Domingos Tótora, a place where nature meets contemporary design. Located in the rolling green mountains of Maria da Fé, Brazil, it is the ideal setting for the designer to concretise his ideas. The main source material Domingos uses, is recycled cardboard, which serves as a base for art objects, sculptural pieces and even furniture. Totora’s designs breathe sustainability, timelessness and serenity. The neutral ochre and deep earthy red tones in his work represent the colour of the earth in the rural areas of his home country.
