The Cobogó is a typically Brazilian constructive element, inspired by the usual wooden structures of Arab architecture that were developed in the Northeast during the 1920s, but from 1950 onwards also gaining prominence in the other corners of the country and in the designs of modernist architects. Its name consisted of the first syllables of the surname of its inventors: Amadeu Oliveira Coimbra, Ernest August Boeckmann and Antônio de Góis.
Cobogos are found in various materials, most of which are cement, glass and ceramics. Their color palette is becoming ever more diverse and the surfaces may be dull or enamelled. There are options for all styles!
How and why are leaked elements used in the decoration?
But why were these blocks so beloved by the architects? It is because cobogó is a good way to create a partition that “licks” light and ventilation through environments primarily used as a simple source to solve questions from rooms that have no windows.
Although this is the main distinguishing feature of the Cobogó, it is also very nice of its style that it simultaneously promotes the separation and integration of the rooms, as we can see through the wall. So, if you have a very wide environment, such as an apartment with a kitchen, a dining room, and a combined living room, goblins and other leaked elements are good ways to share that environment without as much disruption in the way we see the room , to cause . In the same sense, the cobogó and the leaky partitions are widely used for delineating rooms and spaces in work environments such as offices and restaurants.
Another creative way to use a leaked wall is to separate indoor and outdoor: For areas such as the garden and pool with living room and kitchen (the general areas of the house in general), the leaky wall brings the environments closer together Integration between inside and outside, with a privileged view and a special lighting of the sun.
The facade of the house is also a large space to receive a wall of Cobogó, especially for houses that receive too much sun, the structure can somewhat absorb the reception of the sun, a cooler space especially for building gardens with plants create more sensitivity to the sun.
In the walls of the houses the Cobogos are very popular, especially the larger ones. They often appear on horizontal strips at the top to allow the light through and to smooth the view of the wall, as the monolithic structure of the walls of the facade of the house can give a heavier and cooler appearance.
Despite all advantages, the only limitation of the Cobogó is that the spilled part of the structure can dust up and facilitate the entry of mosquitoes into the environment, which must be cleaned with particular care.
Other leaked molds for your decoration
In addition to the Cobogos there are other room dividers that can be used in your decoration according to your preference for size, material, color and of course price.
The wall panels are usually solid and made with wood and MDF. They are super high for those who want something thinner and more delicate than the Cobogó, in addition to the numerous cuts that can be chosen according to the style of the customer and the possibilities of the machines. The size options vary from design to design, but can range from half a wall to the entire wall.
In addition to the solid partitions, the furniture is very popular for those who constantly change and change the decor of the house. Simple and very versatile, the screens are very popular and go to different types of decoration, from the simplest to the most ornate. They are also viable options as cobogos and wood panels are often more expensive and labor intensive to install.
