Press release
July 7 2016, as PIASA pursue their exploration of the Homes of
Design with a selection of rare works fresh to the market. The sale
reflects Brazil’s intense creative energy, featuring designers from
the 1940s to today – led by Joaquim Tenreiro, Sergio Rodrigues,
Jorge Zalszupin alongside contemporary stars like the Campana
To immerge us in this Brazilian world, PIASA will also spangle the
sale with items of decorative and graphic art – ceramics, glass, metal,
tapestries and pictorial works – by the greatest artists of the 1950s
and ’60s. The result: a sweeping panorama of one of the world’s
most remarkable artistic scenes.
Brazil started producing distinctive furniture of its own in the 1940s, with Designers
abandoning European influences to launch a new style imbued with their own
culture, adapted to local taste and means of production. The 1950s-1970s were one of
the most fertile periods for Brazilian Design, and a field of expression for pioneers of
Modernism. The 120 works offered at PIASA span the period and help us understand
its stylistic evolution.
This Modernist rupture, accompanied by the desire to forge a national aesthetic,
gave rise to a unique type of Design. Initially, it was artists and architects, like
John Graz and Gregori Warchavchik, who laid the bases of modern furniture. The
development of woodwork and carving was boosted by the special savoir-faire
of such craftsmen as Joaquim Tenreiro, who hailed from a family of Portuguese
carpenters. His unprecedented sense of form, scale, detail and craftsmanship played
a major rôle in ushering his generation towards an aesthetic apporach that embraced
Brazilian culture and its emerging modernity. Other great names would follow, each
distinguished by a personal and highly identifiable style: Sergio Rodrigues, Jorge
Zalszupin, Zanine Caldas, Scapinelli, Geraldo de Barros….
The appearance of modern housing created new needs in terms of furniture. Some
architects, like Oscar Niemeyer or Lucio Costa, concentrated on designing exclusive
pieces adapted to new buildings. The first training in Design techniques emerged in
Brazil (Liceu das Artes e Oficios), helping to consolidate a purely Brazilian tradition
and laying a formal basis for future Brazilian Design.
There will be a special focus on contemporary pieces and Brazil’s latest Design
trends. Amazing pieces by such leading names as the Campana Brothers and Zanini
de Zanine will be available, stressing typically Brazilian themes: generational savoirfaire in the working of wood; the importance of cultural métissage; the influence of
Concretist aesthetics; recourse to new materials and new techniques; Design Art;
Subversive Design...
For decades Brazil has been a nerve-centre of a creativity imbued with its own identity,
style, culture and free spirit, all reflecting its eclectic origins. The sale Design do
Brasil will, for the first time, highlight the history of Brazil’s unique and pioneering
contribution to Design.
