são paulo-based designer guto requena presented two collections for the sao paulo design weekend.
the first was the ‘noize chair’ which takes the sounds of the city and mashes them with iconic post-modern seats to create
a new hybrid piece. the process showcases how the advancement of technology can be used to develop new forms of
furniture blurring the lines of art and science.

for his second collection ‘once upon a time’, requena looks at storytelling as a theme of exploration. the vases are composed of four
narratives which were told by his grandmother when he was a child. the outline of the pieces are the dynamics of her voice as she
told the tales. her speech was recorded and then transposed into a single line which was then given to a glass blower to create the final form.
