100% Minas is an exhibition that seeks to present the brand new production of furniture designers based in Minas Gerais. Its expography seeks references in common elements of civil works: wooden post shores and facade screens. Although part of the construction process of any building, such cheap, temporary components never remain and are rarely considered as elements of final architecture.
The pinus posts serve to delimit, albeit subtly, the compartmentalization and circulation around the room. Arranged in a regular 2×2 meters grid, they suggest possibilities of circulation, structure the arrangement of the objects and at the same time exalt the bars of the ceiling, on which the posts are fixed. Joining them as if in a translucent labyrinth, the planes formed by the screens define the many ambiences of the room.
The event takes place in an old mansion located on Rua Sapucaí, a central region marked by strong urban, political and gastronomic effervescence of Belo Horizonte, which has become a kind of cultural corridor established in a spontaneous way.
