Brazilian designer Hugo França is featured in Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden's 2013-2014 Art at Fairchild season. França uses all natural materials to create functional and sustainable design pieces like chaises and benches. Each piece is created from reclaimed wood from felled, burned or dead trees found in Brazil. By working them into intricate design pieces, França gives new life to trees, some of which are hundreds of years old. Take a look...
Also designed of pequi wood, this lounge chair is both whimsical and functional.
