Maricris Floirendo Brias Coral Wall Panel
Coral Wall Panel is Iron Design Award winner in 2016 - 2017 Furniture Design Award Category.
Coral Wall Panel

The coral wall panel is created as a decorative accent for the home. Inspired by the sea life and beauty of the fan coral found in the Philippine waters. It is made of a metal frame structured and shaped like a coral covered with abaca fibers, from the banana family (musa textilis). The fibers are intricately twined with wires by artisans. Each coral panel is handcrafted making each product unique as the same organic shape as a real sea fan in that no two sea fans in nature are alike.

Maricris is a designer who works closely with ethnic tribes in the Philippines and helps preserve their native artistry and ways of life. Since everything she uses is natural and produced using traditional methods, all her products are environmentally friendly. She founded TADECO Home as a livelihood project of TADECO Inc., a banana producer in Mindanao, with the intention to support the wives and dependents of the plantation workers. She draws her inspiration for her designs from nature thus creating organic shapes and patterns in her products.

Tadeco Home

Tadeco Home creates using only all-natural fibers. Their abaca* fiber is intricately handwoven by the region's ethnic indigenous people into rolls of fine t'nalak fabric, using traditional techniques passed on from many generations. This distinctive fabric is then converted into contemporary home accents and lighting pieces by seasoned artisans of Mindanao. Tadeco Home has evolved from a community development program of Tagum Agricultural Development Co.(TADECO), a major banana exporter in Asia, into a globally acknowledged handicraft manufacturing business in the Philippines. It also produces handmade paper and other products made of banana fiber sourced exclusively from TADECO's plantations.
