BRAZILIAN MID-CENTURY DESIGN – BRUSSELS DESIGN SEPTEMBER
Modernist Brazilian design is regarded as one of the most refined and high quality design in the world.
Before the 1940’s, Brazil imported furniture from Europe; it’s only with the rise of a new architecture and under the impulsion of architects like Oscar Niemeyer that Brazilian design was born.
Most of these new designers were European immigrants, influenced by Bauhaus, Italian or Scandinavian design. Their creation included indigenous materials, especially exotic woods, and shapes reflected the Brazilian way of living.
Gokelaere & Robinson presents a curated selection of Brazilian furniture by
design masters Jorge Zalszupin, Joaquim Tenreiro and Joze Zanine Caldas.
