The Rainforest Collection is inspired by the fragility of the world's natural resources and the mysterious beauty of the flora and fauna found in tropical jungles.
"While on a recent trip to Brazil, I was struck by the beauty of the Amazon rainforest. During my trip, I discovered the work of landscape architect and Brazilian modernist Roberto Burle Marx. His striking work sensitively integrated modern forms and structures with the natural beauty of the country's rainforests. I was very moved by the happy co-existence between the lushness of the forest and the striking modernity of Burle Marx's architectural designs. There is a wonderful contrast between the clean, geometric shapes of the buildings and hardscaping as juxtaposed by the savage, untouched beauty of the rainforest."
