60's Pair of Armchairs, by Giuseppe Scapinelli, Brazilian Mid-Century Modern

$ 10,710
  • Description
    Beautiful and very elegant, this pair of armchairs was designed by Giuseppe Scapinelli in the 60s and it is a great example of his style. The structure is made of Brazilian hardwood.

    The pieces have been reupholstered by one of our best craftsmen in São Paulo and kept their original aura and attraction.

    Unlike the straight lines and geometric shapes, popular at the time, Giuseppe Scapinelli’s creations are made with gentle curves, tapered edges, and more organic forms. His creations can be recognized immediately because of his singular sculptural style.

    Scapinelli was originally from Italy, but it was in Brazil, during the post-war period, that he created his most important pieces, bringing a different perspective to the Brazilian design production at that period.
    Born in Modena, Sérgio studied architecture in Florence, after graduation he moved to São Paulo, where he opened the design studio that would launch his career, Atelier Scapinelli.
    Giuseppe also worked beautifully with ceramics, painting, and sculpture, and only in the early 50s, he has started his career drawing furniture. Today, he is considered one of the most expressive names which have produced in Brazil at the time.
