1950s Bench / Auxiliary Table in Pau Marfim Wood by Acácio Gil Borsoi, Brazil

About

Huge table or bench made of vertical Pau Marfim slats, with magazine holder underneath and a formica top table to the right side. This piece is unique and made to order in 1958. It should be fixed to the walls in the back and on the right side (please get in touch about adapting this piece to be used only on a rear wall). In 2017, we discovered a collection of mid-century modern pieces in a house in front of the beach in João Pessoa, Paraíba, Northeast of Brazil. We acquired the collection because of its beauty, but not knowing anything about it. After extensive research, in 2018 we are proud to present all these pieces to the public, and very happy to be able to determine its authorship: Acácio Gil Borsoi, an architect born in Rio that moved to Recife in the early 1950s. His body of work spans through decades and it is of extreme importance for the diffusion of modenrist architecture in the Northeast region of Brazil. All the pieces were custom-made to members of the Ribeiro Coutinho family, one of the richest and most influential families of Paraíba on those days. Their uniqueness and boldness make them amazing statement unique pieces.
