The House of DJ Pil Marques in São Paulo, Brazil

 It is not easy to decorate the house of a collector. Not only do you have to make the collection the central element of the decoration but you also have to understand the collector’s particular drive and perceive the world through his eyes. Trust me, the collector’s world, regardless of whether we are talking about art, photography, vinyl or porcelain figures, is a different world from that which we live in.

That’s because everything is seen through a kaleidoscopic mirror where the trivial becomes important and the insignificant acquires new meaning. In other words, it’s a magic world, the perfect antidote to the emptiness of everyday life, a flamboyant attempt to defeat death by chasing the impossible: to complete the collection, to have all versions of something, to have what no one else has.
