The Varanda Products catalogue offers a range of solutions inspired in the puxadinhos, aggregates of recycled materials superposed to the existing structures, which Rio locals have used over the years to colonize their environment. 

Presented with a simple and didactic style, the catalogue proposes a series of intelligent and economical solutions for everyday problems that, like the puxadinhos, can also be installed in spaces beyond the boundaries of private property. 

Inspired in the varanda (‘balcony’ or ‘porch’), which functions as an interface between the individual and the collective, the prototypes resort to the logic of the market to stimulate small-scale urban enterprises and gather different social groups.
