Brazil has long harboured its own modernist tradition in architecture and the arts, but little of its furniture design has been seen outside of the country due to restrictive export policies during the decades of its greatest creative ferment.
Like Brazil itself, the story of Brazilian design begins with wood. Varieties of hardwood rarely found outside South America - rosewood, jacaranda, Gonçalo alves, tulipwood - lie at the core of Brazilian design, forming the source material with which Brazil's great 20th century designers developed a modern and Brazilian vocabulary.
Featuring the work of the best designers - Lina Bo Bardi, Oscar Niemeyer, and Sergio Rodrigues - as well as numerous designers whose work and reputations rarely reached foreign shores, this book is the first comprehensive guide to this untapped vein of modernist design.
