  • Description
    These lounge chairs by Giuseppe Scapinelli are a stunning example of Brazilian mid-century modern design. Created in the 60s, the chairs are a testament to Scapinelli's singular style. Unlike the straight lines and geometric shapes that were popular at the time, Scapinelli's pieces feature gentle curves, tapered edges, and more organic forms, all of which are exemplified in this beautiful pair of armchairs.

    Crafted from Brazilian hardwood, the chairs showcase the extraordinary craftsmanship that went into their production. The curved lines of the design only serve to accentuate the organic characteristics of the wood, and the pieces have been reupholstered by one of our best craftsmen in São Paulo, ensuring that they retain their original aura and attraction.

    Giuseppe Scapinelli was born in Modena, Italy, and studied architecture in Florence before moving to São Paulo, where he opened the design studio that would launch his career, Atelier Scapinelli. Although he worked with ceramics, painting, and sculpture, it wasn't until the early 50s that he began drawing furniture. Scapinelli's singular sculptural style made him one of the most expressive names of Brazil's mid-century design, and his creations remain highly sought after today.

    If you are looking for a beautiful and elegant addition to your home, these lounge chairs by Giuseppe Scapinelli are an excellent choice. They are a testament to Scapinelli's unique style and the extraordinary craftsmanship of Brazilian furniture makers.
