DESIGN PROJECT IN THE AMAZON RAINFOREST
'Black Gold' is a case study of a project carried out in the Amazon rainforest. The designers joined forces
with the local community of acai berry pickers to create a system of devices for improving the safety
of the traditional collection of the fruit, which grows at great heights on quite fragile palm trees.
Join us @ Austin Design Week, November 8th-12th 2021, Austin, TX
Our designers' talk and film will explain more about the approach applied in this project.
The short film depicts the stages of the project conducted in the Brazilian state of Para, and the results
of the collaboration with the local community members.
