Mana Bernardes is a designer, poet, multimedia artist, and art therapist who is best known for her jewelry made of discarded plastics and other materials. A desire to recreate her Jóias Cotidianas (Everyday Jewels) on a larger scale led to her collaboration with Aírton Pimenta (illuminator and owner of Lightworks) and Zeca Cury (woodworker and owner Oficina de Marcenaria). During meetings (and dives) in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, and Ubatuba, the collective created Môbiluz, a limited edition of mobiles that are ethereal, subtle, translucent, and lightweight. Each object is made of laminated wood, LED lighting, and industrial scraps of iridescent sequins. The Môbiluz fixtures are a contemplative objects that can be adjusted manually to create different shadows and moods.
