It was in the middle of 1970 that Fábio Alvim stuck your name in the history of Brazilian design. Graduated in fine arts, he began your career as a jeweler and gradually transitioned to the creation of lighting fixtures. Parts made with the technique in which he pioneered, the mix between metal and fabric, were a big hit at the time — so much so that the lamp shell was catalogued by the Museum of modern art in New York (MoMA), among other awards and recognitions to dozens of merit. But with the death of Sao Paulo in 1993, his works ended up falling by the wayside, waiting silently until 20 years later, people of your life unite to bring back your legacy.
In 2013, the career of Fabio Alvim was honored at the Museum of the Brazilian House (MCB)–inaugurating the annual series pioneers of Brazilian Design, and debated by Adelia Borges, Eddy Auresnede and Fábio Magalhães – being the last one standing supporter of the designer, since college, where he was a professor of Fabio. It was from this event that the actress Manuela Alvim saw your life take completely different directions of expected. The young man decided to devote himself to the project of bringing up father’s creations.
“I’ve always felt called to do that. When people started talking about his name, I realized that the time had come. But it took a while until I could dive in your building process, since I never reeditaria his pieces if it wasn’t to be as they deserve, “says Manuela. “His production is very relevant and was standing. As said Adelia Borges, he brought to the rational design of the season a little dream and poetry. In addition, herepresents the unpretentious way of brazilian production. While not valuing the best, we’re not going to stop copying things out. “
The first stage of the project was to bring back the lamp Shell in a numbered series.Then, in November 2014, a collection of pieces of metal and fabric joined the fair MADE. And the plans don’t stop there. “I’m studying all I can to be able to produce with the accuracy that my father did. In 2015 plan to launch some items from the collection of Sculptures of Light, not to mention in the book. “
With the help of Fábio Magalhães, Manuela prepares to launch Fabio Alvim – Design and invention, which will serve as a key instrument to perpetuate the work of father. “This is a very important step, because it‘s not patented anything. I am very upset to see copies of your fixtures without proper credit.
In addition to a tribute, the return of Fabio means something more to Manuela. “There is a whole emotional issue. I’m an only child and is very nice resume the connection that we had. “ When asked about possible personal interventions in your parent,she answers without hesitation. “I respect the work and the life he has dedicated to the creation, so I try to be as thorough as possible at pieces he created – the only thing that’s changed is the upgrading of technology. In the future I might get to the point to dare more. I’m pretty sure my Dad wouldn’t mind. On the contrary, would be very proud. “
