David Elia designed the Veneza Carioca Collection in 2014 in response to Brazil's problems with flooding and landslides. In favela neighborhoods, houses are built without planning on unstable plots of land. As a result, people lose all of their possessions. Waste mismanagement and unreliable infrastructure cause these floods, which in turn affects the transportation system and leads to much frustration and chaos. It is a highly controversial issue in Brazilian society. This design is currently available in yellow, green, white, or blue. Each is one-of-a-kind.

 

Brazilian-born, London-based David Elia is an award-winning artist and designer. His work embraces cultural hybridization and gambiarra, a Portuguese word referencing a makeshift problem-solving style common to Brazil that is generally necessitated by a lack of tools and inspired by a tradition of resourcefulness. His work also embraces upcycling and Post-Minimalist tendencies.

 

Much of Elia’s work uses Brazilian society as a frame through which to consider nationally and globally relevant issues like violence, drug trafficking, poor urban infrastructure, and environmental degradation. Elia’s work is included in multiple public and private collections, including Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Museum of Arts & Design, François Pinault Collection, and Sir Elton John Art Collection, among others.
