Wood tiles reimagined through upcycling
Wooden tiles have been a fixture in brazilian homes from the nineteenth century forward but lately they’re being replaced for other types of flooring. To us, that’s borderline sacrilegious.
That’s why we created the Taco (Wooden Tiles in portuguese) tables: to evoke the collective memory and give the removed tiles new and improved life. As we give the tiles a different function, we pay homage to what they’ve been, as the table’s pattern draw inspiration from antique flooring designs. Different species of wood are always prefered and sought after, and all tables are unique, limited and numbered as there’s no guarantee as to when and how we’ll be able to get more tiles, so each table has a untransferable individuality.
Reclaiming wood this way is a sign of tenderness towards our own history.
