The annual Casa Cor exhibition is not your conventional furniture fair, as it gives teams of architects, interior designers and landscape artists free reign in their allocated space. These teams simply decide who it is they are designing for – from a young executive to a family or an elderly couple – and then build the bloody thing. At the close of the event, everything on show – from the artwork hanging on the walls to the walls themselves – is up for sale.
Casa Cor was conceived in São Paulo 29 years ago, and now has several franchises throughout Brazil. This year, the most astonishing ‘exhibition stand’ is Guilherme Torres’ Villa Deca. It is supposed to enhance the dolce far niente.
