Text description provided by the architects. Inspired by modernist lines, Studio + Fórmica, an environment of CASACOR Minas, stands out for its architecture with organic shapes, designed in honor of the 22nd Week. The architects Assis Humberto and Marcus Vinícius, founders of Studio Arquitetônico, took the commitment to create the Studio + Fórmica project, the functional kitchen of CASACOR Minas. A tradition in the living room, the space has hosted a series of gastronomic encounters and show-classes, promoting encounters and the Minas Gerais culture of bringing people together around the table for gastronomic experiences. The program provides for the presence and participation of guest chefs for a series of actions such as brunches, lunches, dinners and wine tastings.

The project by architects Assis Humberto and Marcus Vinícius, for CASACOR Minas 2022, had architecture as its main objective. The inspiration for the sensory architecture proposed by the architects had as its starting point the centenary of the Semana de 22, considered a historical landmark for all Brazilian society, with reflections on culture, architecture, design and the fashion.

Inspired by modernism, Assis Humberto and Marcus Vinícius developed an architecture that explores organic forms. “In our architecture, we pay homage to this movement. Our contemporary design has been added to elements of the modernist culture, such as the slender curves, the free spans, the glass box, which delimits the living room, without losing the connection with nature. Furniture and works of art reinforce this link with what is ours,” emphasizes Marcus Vinícius, of Studio Arquitetônico.

The result is surprising for its lightness, the beauty of the curves and the integration with the environment. Access to the environment is via a suspended walkway that crosses a garden. The visitor is led into a glazed living room surrounded by gardens, which serves as an antechamber to the “kitchen”. The duo’s challenge was to divert attention from the kitchen, creating a harmonious dialogue between all the spaces of the environment, creating different but complementary climates.

Studio + Formica was designed to be a “kitchen of sensations”. The designer furniture, developed in partnership with Prima Linea, is inspired by the childhood of architects. This is the case of the Jirau table, which refers to the old jirais and the comfortable Taboca chairs, a Tupi word which means Brazilian bamboo. “Connecting to our essence, remembering times with our grandparents, we developed the table we named Jirau. Jirau is the most democratic piece of vernacular design. The term, derived from the Tupi language, designates a structure composed of boards on sticks and sticks, halfway up, which serves to shelter and protect the crops from contact with the ground and also to dry the containers in the sun. The table with its organic top refers to the lakes of the paths, supported by four cylindrical bases of different thicknesses, alluding to the sticks used to support a jirau,” says Assis Humberto. The duo’s idea was to break away from the rigid shapes of traditional dining tables, adding an air of lightness to contemporary spaces.
