Looking forward to antiquing and snooping around Pinheiros. But where exactly? Try the corner of Rua Cardeal Arcoverde and Dr.Virgilo de Carvalho Pinto, where you will bump into Paulo in his boutique « Forja Recicla ». Recycled industrial objects for great new purposes.
You won’t find designers chest of drawers, silverware of other contemporary furniture. Instead, you will find transformed industrial tools that Paulo, for 40 years, has devised into decorative and useful objects. Paulo loves to work wood, metal, steel, all kinds of objects void of their initial purpose but ready for a new destiny.
How do these forgotten treasures find a new life? Thanks to Paulo’s inspiration, rebirth enabler of that second youth that most objects never expect… A wood palette as a coffee table on bicycle wheels. A reflector transformed into a majestic lamp. An industrial ironing table becoming a desk.
Paulo’s materials, once through his workshop, are transformed into sprucing furniture full of vitamins, ready to start a new life. The king of industrial fallow, it’s Paulo.
