Joaquim Tenreiro Cane and Rosewood Armchair, circa 1958

About

Joaquim Tenreiro, armchair, rosewood and cane, Brazil, 1958 This lounge chair is designed by the Brazilian master designer Joaquim Tenreiro. This chair designed around 1958 has typical traits of the design by Tenreiro. First of all the use of jacaranda and cane, a typical combination that Tenreiro used very often. Although this combination is seen in a lot of Brazilian design, Tenreiro was one of the first to do so. The chair, with its straight lines in the frame and the diagonal cane back is an extremely strong, simplistic piece which has the perfect ratio. Joaquim Tenreiro (1906-1992) was born in Portugal into a family of woodworkers, which led him to start to make furniture from a young age. Here, he also studied painting and geometric drawing. In 1928 he moved to Brazil where he started to work with Laubisch & Hirth and Leandro Martins, manufacturers that were specialised in European furniture. This experience has partly led to him rejecting to design in the furniture with a European tendency. His first piece of furniture was part of a commission by Oscar Niemeyer. In 1943, he founded his own furniture shop, the Lagenbach & Tenreiro workshop. As mentioned before, Tenreiro strongly opposed the European modernists and the Bauhaus. Instead, Tenreiro went for a more Brazilian, South-American in which he had the natural materials of Brazil have a strong influence such as cane and jacaranda. His strong relationship with wood alongside the influences of his geometric art and drawing are what define his original, strong style. Literature: - Cals, Soraia. Tenreiro. Rio de Janeiro: Bolsa de arte, 1998, p. 115.
