Jahara Studio has created several homeware pieces from recycled scrap aluminum. The Brazilian artisans call the pieces 'Batucada,' which is a percussion beat used in Brazilian carnivals.

Not only are the lamps, baskets, plates, vases and other pieces handmade from aluminum scrap, they are anodized in brilliant shades of green, blue, purple, red, and golden yellow. Their unique appearance reinforces the carnival-like sense of rough and tumble that imbues these pieces.

Implications - 'Batucada' Designware by Brazilian Jahara Studio are brilliant pieces that capture a seminal aspect of Brazilian identity (carnival) and it goes a long way in promoting the values of the eco movement. A phenomenal project.
