The Pallas Project is a collection of furniture made collaboratively between great Amazonian carpenters and national designers under the creative direction of Guá Arquitetura , an architecture and design company based in Belém-PA that is proud of its Amazonian origins.

The goal main goal of the collection is to generate visibility for Amazonian carpentry and income for participating carpenters . However, in addition to this, pallas intends to finance a series of actions that aim to benefit riverside communities and promote the dissemination of carpentry techniques that have been documented by the Carpinteiros da Amazônia project – another project that GUÁ ARQUITETURA has been developing with the communities riversides of Pará.

Amazon Carpenters Project

arises as a result of an extensive research study, since 2021, conducted by Gua Arquitetura , located in the Amazon. During this period, the team established a research headquarters on the island of Murutucu, where they dedicated themselves to cataloging and documenting the rich tradition of Amazonian carpentry.

But how exactly does the process of creating a Pallas piece of furniture occur?

Firstly, there is a meticulous search for a perfect connection between the carpenter and the designer , mediated by Guá Arquitetura. Then, the designers embark on an immersion in the Amazon, immersing themselves in the riverside universe with the aim of creating, in partnership with carpenters, genuinely Amazonian furniture.


Aligned with the purpose of the project , which aims to provide visibility to Amazon Carpenters , the furniture is individually named as an expression of empowerment for this vernacular profession . This practice not only recognizes each carpenter's unique craftsmanship, but also highlights the cultural and sustainable importance of their work in the Amazon region.


• The origin of wood

It is a priority in the Pallas Project. To do this, we count on the support of VEDAC, a company that rescues traces of hardwood that has been neglected by the traditional industry due to knots and other organic characteristics that impact the uniformity of the pieces.

These actions, alongside others such as combating mono-extraction and the use of sustainable management, preserve the ecosystems of the Amazon region, valuing the importance of the responsible use of natural resources.
