Carlo Hauner and Martin Eisler for Forma, 'Conchinha' lounge chairs, iron, fabric, Brazil, 1950s

Elegant and modern armchairs by Brazilian designer duo Hauner & Eisler. The thin, elegant frame is made in black painted iron. Due to the diagonal connection and lines of the frame, these lounge chairs get a delicate appearance. The armrest graduate smoothly into the seats. The seat itself reclines backwards giving these chairs a playful dynamic appearance. The white upholstery is a beautiful contrast to the moody and elegant black bases of these chairs.

Along with many of the most important Brazilian designers, Martin Eisler (1913-1977) was educated in Europe. He studied architecture in Austria after which he moved to Buenos Aires in 1938. In the same year, he founded an architecture firm and organized an exhibition of his furniture. Carlo Hauner (1927-1996), just as Eisler, 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. Eisler and Hauner met in 1953, a little while after Hauner founded Moveís Artesenal, a production company. Together they started Galeria Artesenal, a store to accompany Moveís Artsenal. Hauner and Eisler’s designs are characterized by their use of native woods to Brazil such accompanied by thin tubular frames.
