The Brazilian contemporary artist Rodrigo Bueno, in one of his recent creative works, created a new concept of a design chair and furniture design. He cultivates botanical life within nature-filled furniture. But we has to wait until the colorful botanical life grows with furniture, interlacing bark, branches and leaves into fabric cushions and legs.
The contemporary artist lives and works in what he calls the “jungle inside” the name of his home and working space, located in Lapa in São Paulo.

The studio is an invitation inside this jungle, a symbol of the quest for self-knowledge and unveiling of the subconscious. It has become a living laboratory where nature and time are at ease with each other, a place where reclaimed materials, mostly wood, and plants collected from urban waste, are transformed into installations, sculptures, paintings and objects that speak about the continuity of life.
By rescuing natural materials, the artist draws attention to the environment, full of optimistic colors, geometry, and figures while extracting fresh common references from an ancestral ground. His work unveils fundamental questions about universal issues.
