Its coarse, tactile façade recalled the fur of an animal. Its door was clad with 105 carved-wood body parts. As imagined by Brazilian architect and designer Gustavo Neves for the 2019 edition of Casacor, Casa Sumé was a concept home that caused a stir.

Erected in São Paulo at what is Brazil’s largest design, architecture, and interiors trade show, the home prototype blended fine craftsmanship and surprising details. The interior’s custom furniture—which explored the South American country’s heritage with a mix of local materials, often left raw—also served as the jumping-off point for a high-end product line that launched this month through the Invisible Collection, an online marketplace for custom and limited edition furnishings and decor.

While the house’s distinctive front door is only available on special request, 15 pieces of furniture and lighting that filled Casa Sumé are now available for purchase, ranging in price from around $1,700 to more than $19,000. For each piece, Neves carefully selects materials such as bronze, wood, brass, and rare crystals or other stone. Like a jeweler, he often finishes the pieces with molten metal. To create the Sumé dining table, for example, Neves carves a piece of reclaimed wood and then inlays it with bronze heated to 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit. The wood is then carbonized—making each piece unique, with patina and form influenced by the metal’s contact with the wood. “I do not control how the metal will arrange itself,” Neves says.
