Brazil Modern


About this book:

Twentieth-century Brazilian furniture design is perhaps the last great largely unknown tradition of modernism, characterized by rich and sensually textured hardwoods and an ingenuity, grace, and simplicity that exemplify the national character of brasilidade. With well over 400 historic images and new photography,ŒæBrazil Modern: The Rediscovery of Twentieth-Century Brazilian FurnitureŒæsurveys the history and legacy of this innovative design tradition. Featuring the work of the titans of Brazilian designäóîLina Bo Bardi, Oscar Niemeyer, Joaquim Tenreiro, and Sergio Rodriguesäóîas well as numerous designers whose work and reputations only recently reached foreign shores,ŒæBrazil ModernŒæis the first comprehensive guide to this untapped vein of modernist design.
