Ecofirstart 5

A dining table in solid slab Tamboril designed by Brazil's Tunico T. with a unique 3 leg base. The top has one piece of inset glass custom made to fit into a crotch in the natural slab, and the legs are held in place by flat black finished metal details. The top itself also contains several well placed butterflies both for accent and additional support. Tunico T. lives in Brasilia with his wife and two of his children. He finds his raw materials in the surrounding "Cerrado" the largest savannah region in South America. For over thirty years, Tunico T. has scrupulously enforced that neither he nor his trackers cut down living wood. Instead, he extends the life of expired Brazilian hardwoods, fallen or sawn long ago, and transports their beauty into the indoors. Each piece begins as material that is meticulously selected by hand and evolves into a creation of equally meticulous hand craftsmanship. It is a tactile communion that is endemically Brazilian—and one that is only newly appreciated on an international level. That Tunico T. is so poised to capture worldwide interest utterly defies the economic disadvantages dealt to the artist in his youth.
