Surface Design Show 2024

10 Apr 2023

Fragments Collection

Nathalia Nova Design Stand: NT9

Fragments Collection - Unique lamps, furniture, utensils and decorative pieces, made in Brazil, address a new era, the conscious consumption.


We know that in the past, furniture design was made to last, passing through generations. After the Industrial Revolution things changed, with a frenetic pace of production when the purpose was more quantity than quality. This situation resulted in a large number of discarded products that had a great impact on nature.

Designer Nathalia Nova’s response is Fragments Collection. By exploring local factories in Brazil with different segments, to understand the production processes and what kind of material residues were produced.

What caught her attention was a place making beautiful blown crystal with a technique from Murano in Italy. Utilising pieces of leftover blown crystals became tables lamps bricks and even jewellery in a kind of wabi-sabi approach, to recreate different surfaces for a collection of furniture and objects.

Nathalia Nova: “My objective is transforming discard into efficient and innovative strategies. Use this thinking as a solution for real problems, through the reframing of materials. Together, we can create beautiful and conscious spaces, making a difference to the future of our planet with Design.”
