Studio Swine’s ‘São Paulo Collection’ has been designed and made in São Paulo, Brazil, by two designers Azusa Murakami and Alexander Groves. Their designs are inspired and named after the city of São Paulo.

“The bottle bulbs are a lighting pieces made from beverage bottles that have been heated and re-blown into a eclectic collection of organic forms without the conventional recycling process where the glass is broken down into cullet first. This results in a clearer higher quality glass requiring less energy and retaining some mark of the previous industrially manufactured form. The bulbs are fitted with customised brass fittings and LEDs.”

Mexico-based firm  has constructed Casa Murray akin to the process of building a ship in a bottle : its design was conditioned to the amount of space in which it is placed – a construction without facade, without parking space, without a gas installation, solar collectors or a single spot where the street can be observed.
