The tour through the architecture of the environments highlights the careful choice of geometric repetition with JoyMZ ceramic tile – Marília Zimmermann’s own creation for the company Portinari. With traces that slide to make a delicate geometry, colors and elements match the light effects well. This is all that reaffirms the proposed idea of receiving and welcoming.

There is a subtle tonal variation and a slight balance due to the choice of salmon and water green colors. In addition to the pastel color palette, there is a visual enhancement achieved with the golden of the metals and the delicate touch of the flowers. It is this well-composed set of elements that answers the neon question, “What color is your peace?”

The show

Casa Cor exhibition is held in a historic building in the Brazilian city of Porto Alegre. The Lavabo Tri Suave project was designed to appropriate the existing structure in the space. For example, the arches form and create rhythmic repetitions, favoring the architectural design.
