$ 12,500
  • Description
    Available today, this absolutely ONE-OF-A-KIND Brazilian Modern Floating Sideboard in Hardwood and Brass designed by Giuseppe Scapinelli in the 1950s is nothing less than spectacular!

    The stunning piece is made with Caviuna wood, which has been expertly refinished by our expert artisans in Brazil and displays colorful veins. It has four pullout drawers, each one with a brass handle. This piece belonged to a private residence in Curitiba, a city in the Brazilian state of Parana.

    The sideboard can be found in our gallery in NYC, hanging on a green wall next to Jorge Zalszupin's "Limestone" coffee table. The arrangement looks stunning. This piece has been securely hung on drywall, concrete, and wood walls using five thick nails, ensuring that the weight is evenly distributed in each case.

    About the author:
    Giuseppe Scapinelli was an Italian-Brazilian furniture designer who worked primarily in the mid-20th century. He was known for his elegant and innovative designs, which often incorporated curved lines, tapered legs, and other elements that were ahead of their time.

    Scapinelli's work was heavily influenced by the Art Deco and Bauhaus movements, as well as his own personal experiences as an immigrant to Brazil. He produced a wide range of furniture pieces, including chairs, tables, cabinets, and more.

    His furniture was characterized by its sleek lines, minimalist aesthetic, and use of high-quality materials like exotic woods and brass. Scapinelli's designs were also notable for their attention to detail and commitment to quality, which made his pieces highly durable and long-lasting.

    Today, his work is highly sought after by collectors and design enthusiasts around the world. Scapinelli passed away in 1985 at the age of 75.
