About

Pair of armchairs, in iron and green velvet fabric, by Carlo Hauner for Forma, Brazil, 1950s. 

Elegant and modern armchairs by Brazilian designer Carlo Hauner. The thin, elegant frame is made from black painted iron. Due the diagonal connection and lines and the thin iron of the frame, these lounge chairs get a delicate appearance. The armrest runs smoothly over into the seating. The seat itself reclines backwards giving these chairs a playful dynamic appearance. The green velvet has recently been upholstered and is in very good condition.

Carlo Hauner (1927-1996) studied in Europe at the Brera Academy in Milan, Italy. Once arrived in Brazil, after 1948, he dedicated himself to textile, ceramics, furniture and architecture. He paired up with his brother Ernesto Hauner, Carlo being the creative of the pair. In 1951, the Hauner brothers bought Lina Bo Bardi and Pietro Bardi's Pau-Brazil factory, which would be renamed after Móveis Artesenal. Later on, he would associate with new partners Martin Eisler and Ernesto Wolf, with whom he would later create the company Forma. Hauner himself left a small legacy of mainly upholstered furniture.
