Special Edition Rio ’16 Olympics

The Rio 2016 Olympics are about to start and we want to celebrate them by paying tribute to the city’s most emblematic beaches: Copacabana and Ipanema. In their honor we’ve created a special edition inspired by the walkways that surround the beaches and that have become their symbol.

Copacabana

In Copacabana’s walkway we can find a sample of Portuguese pavement. It’s a large scale mosaic, 4 km long, and its characteristic black and white tiles transmit the Brazilian natural elegance and sensuality. The drawing, designed by Roberto Burle Marx, represents a geometric wave that reminds us of the ocean’s hypnotic melody. It was created in the 1930s and then rebuilt in 1970.

Ipanema

On the other hand, Ipanema’s landscape project was made by the architect Renato Primavera Marinho in order to commemorate the city’s 400th anniversary. The mosaic is also composed by black and white tiles that form rounded, geometric drawings in the style of the 60s. This carpet brings us back to the Atlantic sunsets and the alternative, cultured and exotic ambiance of Ipanema’s jazz clubs.
