Tropicália Series by Fetiche Design for Schuster

Fetiche Design took inspiration from Tropicália, the 1960s Brazilian movement that celebrated art forms like music, poetry, and theater, when designing their latest collection for Schuster appropriately titled, Tropicália.

The movement had a long-lasting effect on the country of Brazil “by the discovery of modernity and the tropics,” which are reflected in this series of furniture. The results are a sleek, glossy collection with bright blues and greens with little touches of wooden details.
