'Tesoura' Chair by José Zanine Caldas in Cream Bouclé

Sold Sold
  • Description
    José Zanine Caldas (1919-2001) was a self-taught artist, designer and architect from Brazil. For over 10 years he ran a workshop specializing in architectural scale models, where he developed over 500 models for top Brazilian architects including Oscar Niemeyer and Lucio Costa. In 1949, Caldas created the Fábrica Moveis Artísticos Z to produce standardized plywood furniture for a wider public.

    Tired of the capitalist approach of the company, he put an end to the venture and moved to the coastal suburb of Nova Viçosa. There he began to create furniture that was later called Móveis Denúncia, or protest furniture. Inspired by both the local craftsmanship and the natural resources of the area, his large wooden pieces were often made from a single tree trunk.

    Perfect as a desk chair or a bedroom side chair.
