This week at Design Miami/ Cristina Grajales Gallery debuted Pedro Barrail’s Tattoo Breakfast Table. The work is a continuation of a theme Barrail began in 2008 with his bar stools, which are also at the fair.
Barrail’s pieces are a result of a collaboration between contemporary design and folkloric traditions maintained by the indigenous tribes in the Amazon. Barrail crafts the pieces from wood, and then they are tattooed by the tribes people with patterns, imagery, and symbols typical of their culture.
“Pedro Barrail’s breakfast table and stools convey an intensity of emotion,” says Gallery Owner Cristina Grajales. “Pedro’s pieces display a marriage between folk art and contemporary design, as well as between tradition and contemporary culture.”
