Set of Four Curved Dining Chairs by Joaquim Tenreiro, Brazil, 1960s


Four beautiful curva ("curved") chairs by Joaquim Tenreiro. These elegant chairs show all the characteristics that Tenreiro's work is famous for; the use of beautiful Brazilian wood, balanced lining and shaping and execution with the greatest attention to detail. Each chair has a D-shaped cane seat and a curved back with 16 thin spindles. They are light in structure and weight and as beautiful in real life as on the pictures. Living in a society where perfect execution is not everybody's primary concern, you can feel the amount of love, sweat and headaches that went into producing these chairs. ⠀⠀ Literature: - Tenreiro, Soraia Cals, Bolsa de Arte do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 1998, p. 127 and 212 (ill.) - Móvel moderno no Brasil, Maria Cecilia Loschiavo dos Santos, Olhares, 2015, p. 87 and 121. - Móvel moderno Brasileiro, Marcelo Vasconcellos, Aeroplano, P. 92 - Brazil Modern, Aric Chen, Monacelli Press, New York 2016, p. 76 and 77 - Desenho da Utopia, Brazilian Modern Furnitures, Éditions Olhares, São Paulo 2016, p 115.
