Award – Tile Design Challenge Winner

As a participant of the Country Floors Design Challenge, I had the honor to win the competition. I designed a tile that was inspired by the architecture of my region in Brazil, Minas Gerais. Some historical cities as Ouro Preto and Diamantina have amazing neocolonial details, influenced by European designs.   The “Lambrequim” is a sealing detail that is also an spiritual symbol, representing the protection of the home. Their forms can represent lucky, harmony and prosperity. As a winner, I had a publication at Elle Decor Magazine in July/2016 Country Floors Announces Mariana Macedo Ribeiro as the Tile Design Challenge Winner!

The technique used was “Corda Seca” (dry rope), that allows us draw a thin line that separate the colors.

Lighting Design

IGNIGHT For this project, we had to create a company based on the current real world market. After several researches about the decorative lighting industry, I decided to reach a low-price product, that would have good design, but simple materials. My product would also have organic forms, with a modular connection. In this way, the customer would have fun with the puzzle ìDo-It-Yourselfî, and it would became a part of the purpose of the product. Other goals and objectives for my company would be: Increase the selling space by 15% in 3 years, Improve production efficiency by 5% per year and Invest additional 5% per year on marketing in coming 3 years.
