Surface designer Renata Rubim partnered with Oca Brasil on a series of wooden tiles that aim to revisit distinct periods of Brazilian design history: Tribal, Modernist, and Colonial. The Brasiliana collection tiles come in the traditional Portuguese tile size, measuring 20x20cm (7.87×7.87 inches), and are made of eucalipt or Valchromat in various color ways, each with their own personality.
The Tribal tiles, with their geometric, ethic feel, represent the time before Portuguese colonization when indigenous tribes where prevalent. Comes in three patterns.
The Modernist tiles boast abstract patterns that were inspired by the work of Burle Marx (Brazilian landscape architect), perfectly reflecting the Modernist movement.
The Colonial line looks at a time when the Portuguese influence set the tone for society. The collection is full of geometric and organic shapes made famous on traditional Portuguese tiles.
