Brazilian Pair of Scissor Armchairs in Brazilian Hardwood

Sale price$19,800.00

Pair of scissor armchairs, Brazilian hardwood and fabric, Brazil, circa 1950

These exceptionally rare armchairs from Brazil embraces the quintessential Brazilian ethos of the 1950s. The design bears the beauty of Brazil's natural environment through its raw, constructive layout and the skillful use of a local, solid wooden material. The construction is marked by well-defined geometry, logical proportions, and visible constructivist elements. Characterized by simplicity, clarity and absence of ornamentation, this framework is exemplary of architectural minimalism. Upholstered in a delicate patterned fabric in green and white, it beautifully complements the wooden elements. The material use, woodworking, and the overall composition strongly resemblance the designs by Studio de Arte Palma, co-founded by Lina Bo Bardi, Pietro Maria Bardi, and Giancarlo Palanti. In every stylistic detail, these chairs possess the precise charm and vitality required to encapsulate the essence of 1950s Brazilian design.
