The inspiration for the Cobogó Votú, created by architect Arthur Casas for Solarium Revestimentos, came from the wind. The wind and the ability to pass air, light and ventilation simultaneously, without allowing the full view of what is on the other side. A piece that is in dialog with the projects designed by professionals in architecture and can be used in both internal and external areas. Thus was born the concrete block Cobogó Votú, that means air or wind in Tupi Guarani, a Brazilian Indian language.
