Geraldo de Barros (1923-1998) was a painter, photographer and graphic and product designer. He was experimenting with new forms and aesthetics during the forties. In 1952 he founded the Ruptura Group where excessive formalism was the core of their ideals. Barros believed that it was his task to educate the taste of the masses. In his company Hobjeto Barros combined his two ideals by standardizing the production processes of home and office furniture. His furniture introduced innovative techniques such as the injection of rigid structuraed polyurthane and cut and lacquered chipboard.
