The Conjunto Horizontina was inspired by the wrought iron gradis typical of Belo Horizonte. These gradis are found on the facades of the old houses that survive and resist the replacement and upright verticalization of the city.
The diversity of patterns found in the iron grilles portray a discreet and unique beauty and an already extinct locksmith's trade. In order to value this architectural asset, three models of luminaires were created that form the Conjunto Horizontina. Whose name refers to the city of Belo Horizonte and one of its first iron trades, the Horizontina Foundry.
The luminaires are composed of wood, acrylic and cable coated in golden polyester fabric. The square and rectangular formats with central illumination make reference to the windows and the gates of the old houses. On the other hand, the application of the prints on different scales: large, medium and small, portrays the movement in the gradients inserted throughout the city, an hour present in façades with large spans, another hour retracted in a body guard of the porch or even in small Details on the pediment of the building. The simplicity of the wood structure reinforces and highlights the prominence of the surface design worked on the product.
The prints were selected from the Urban Ornament Inventory, by Fernanda Goulart.
