Clareira is the result of a workshop at Museu de Arte Popular, a collaboration project between designers and basketry weaver. It’s made from Stipa Gigantea, a natural fiber used in the junça technique, natural from the region of Beselga, Viseu. Clareira is born to create a space of intimacy as an invitation for lounging in a shared environment. We used the braided technique, called « Ponto » traditionally made by women, to build a dense rug. The three circles merge into one sensual shape to protect and embrace the body. Around this shape the fibers emerge in their raw form, soft borders that allow for sensory experiences.
