Midcentury brazilian writing table in Rosewood by Forma, 1960s


Desk with three drawers, internal movable clipboard and door with internal space, all veneered in rosewood, developed by Forma in the 1960s. The cylindrical metal base creates a buoyant feel despite the high storage capacity. You should also take care of the back, which are also veneered in rosewood. The Forma furniture factory was one of the most important in its time. Before being officially created in 1955, it had some incarnations: it was born by the hands of Lina Bo Bardi and Pietro Maria Bardi like factory Paubra and, in 1949, was bought by the brothers Ernesto and Carlo Hauner, happening to be called Móveis Artesanais. Between 1951 and 1954, he had Sergio Rodrigues as director of interior planning. With the entry of entrepreneurs Martin Eisler and Ernesto Wolff in 1955, the transformation was not only in name (Form SA, Móveis e Objetos de Arte), but of positioning: now with a much larger industrial park, the company could produce much more. With the first store in São Paulo, Brazil, Forma came to the market with an innovative concept: to bring truly modern pieces. Besides the production of the Brazilian artists, there were in his catalog pieces of names like Mies van der Rohe, Eero Saarinen, Florence Knoll, among others.
