Argentinean architects Maria Constanza Nuñez and Gabriel Pires Mateus are the duo behind Gruba. Committed to the creation of spaces and objects that provide alternative green solutions, Gruba works with salvaged materials. In their S.O.S. de Barrio Line they repurpose wooden roller blinds which are usually discarded in the neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. Each chair or table has unique characteristics depending on the reclaimed roller blind.

More recently, they have come out with the Banquito Willy, a stool sustainably designed using engineered wood joined together without glue and an innovative seat created with recycled tennis balls. Clever!
