Natural and man-made materials merge to create TransNeomatic -- a container bowl formed of re-used tires and hand-woven wicker framing. Part functional accessory, part compelling conversation piece.
TransNeomatic is a container bowl made of re-used tire and natural wicker that gets mind and matter moving. The TransNeomatic bowl is produced in Vietnam due to the country's enormous amount of disposed tires from the ubiquitous scooters and light motorcycles, and the highly evolved culture of handcraft skills. Re-use meets resource.

Designer: Estudio Campana
Since 1983, Fernando and Humberto Campana have achieved worldwide recognition through their work in design. Ordinary materials are transformed and reinvented into priceless objects that carry both creativity and the spirit of Brazil – a combination of chaos and solution. The Campana Brothers are constantly investigating new design possibilities. The exchange of information creates bridges and dialogue between communities factories, and industries which is a constant source of inspiration.
