    About the designer:

    Ernesto Hauner was an Italian immigrant who came to Brazil in 1949 and began working in furniture design with renowned figures such as Lina Bo Bardi, Sérgio Rodrigues, Martin Eisler, and his brother Carlo Hauner. He started his career at Studio Palma, which later became Móveis Artesanal, and eventually became a partner at Forma Móveis e Objetos de Arte.

    In 1958, Hauner established his own business with a small factory in São Paulo, where he created modular bookshelves using solid wood. Hauner's designs incorporated new materials that had begun to be produced by the Brazilian industry, allowing him to develop complete furniture lines for both homes and office spaces, adapting to mass production.
