The exhibition presented at the festival Gdynia Design Days 2017, between 30th June and 9th July brings closer our Amazonian project and the peconheiros’ work.



In May we had a privilage to visit Boa Vista do Acará, an amazing community in the Amazon and spend 10 days there, working on the safety of the peconheiros, the people collecting açaí berries. The results of this project and the prototypes of the solutions are presented in the exhibition that you can still see @ Gdynia Design Days 2017 I 30 czerwca – 09 lipca 2017

„During our stay at Boa Vista do Acará we realized even more, how important it is to support the traditional and organic ways of cultivation. The designers, in cooperation with the local government and organization, can contribute to that. It’s crucial not only for the ecosystems of the vast region of the Amazon, but consequently for the whole planet.”
