PROSTHESES AND GRAFTS
Studio MK27 Monday 11 Jul 2011

The collection "Prostheses and Grafts" was ideated by the team of architects of Studio MK27. The furniture is from the project sites of the office, constructed anonymously by civil construction laborers in Brazil.

All of the furniture was used at the sites. Normally, with the end of the construction, some of these pieces were lost and others are reused at other sites. The furniture from the projects underwent some small interventions, realized in a precise and artisan manner.

The project of interventions was a thought out case for each piece of furniture and there was a brief selection of the pieces gathered. Sixteen pieces comprise this collection, initially presented at Micasa VolB in March of 2010.
