DESIGN BRUNNO JAHARA BRAZIL European-trained, Rio-based designer Brunno Jahara is an energetic champion of a fresh new Brazilian design scene. With bright and beautiful products and furniture that speak of Brazil in an international language, he is helping this vast and multicultural country to build its own design identity as a place of abundant resources, innovation and craftsmanship. With his first collection of furniture, Neorustica, made from painted scrap wood, his intention was to highlight the living conditions of Brazilians living in the favelas – people whose resourcefulness he finds especially inspiring. Similarly, his Batucada line of lamps and vessels in hammered anodised aluminium, take their forms from the pans used in Brazil’s favelas to create makeshift musical instruments.

ANDREAS BERGSAKER NORWAY Copenhagen based Norwegian Andreas Ferdinand Riise Bergsaker has been a popular name to watch on the highly competitive Scandinavian design scene, so it’s little surprise that he’s been snapped up by the popular design brand HAY to work in-house for the time being. With a clear talent for making the mundane and the everyday more beautiful, he is a master not just of product longevity in the physical sense, but also imbuing them with lasting emotional value. Championing traditional craftsmanship and tactile qualities, pieces such as his Singularity vase pictured here are in high demand as things you’ll want to have and to hold forever. MARCIN RUSAK POLAND Marcin Rusak takes his inspiration from flowers, but not in a way you’ve ever seen before. As the son and grandson of flower growers in Warsaw, Poland, he has long been fascinated by the decorative possibilities of the natural world, but after some serious investigation into the flower industry he saw potential not in traditional petal motifs but in reusing botanical waste. Creating ethereal (and highly collectable) furniture, lighting and surfaces that use flowers set into specially developed resin, Rusak encourages us to explore our surroundings, question our consumption, and look at the details of our lives in a different light. Rusak’s Flora Perma collection as pictured here sees flowers ‘frozen’ into playful patterns, then machined to create a new, fossilised-marble effect. THE JAGUAR 49
