$ 3,800
  • Description
    The exquisite 'Maracana' side table is a rare and highly sought-after piece created by Guiseppe Scapinelli, a celebrated Italian designer who made a significant impact on the São Paulo design scene during the 1950s and 1960s. Born in 1891, Scapinelli was a masterful furniture maker and retailer whose distinct style was characterized by curvy lines and soft shapes. These design elements drew inspiration from the elegance of 1940s Italian design, setting Scapinelli apart from the mainstream offerings of his contemporaries in Brazil. Skillfully crafted from luxurious Brazilian caviuna wood, the Maracana side table exemplifies Scapinelli's attention to detail and quality. Its round, sculptural form is both aesthetically pleasing and functional.

    The table features four gracefully curved legs that converge and connect via a wooden ring, providing a sense of stability and balance to the overall design. The tabletop is comprised of a beautiful round slab of marble, framed by the rich caviuna wood structure. This juxtaposition of materials creates a stunning contrast between the warmth and natural beauty of the wood and the cool, sleek sophistication of the marble. This harmonious blend of materials is a testament to Scapinelli's design prowess and his ability to create furniture that is both visually striking and practical.

    Guiseppe Scapinelli was renowned for designing and producing one-of-a-kind pieces for the most exclusive homes in São Paulo. His innovative designs and impeccable craftsmanship ensured that his creations were highly coveted by those seeking unique and exceptional furniture. Though Scapinelli passed away in 1982, his design legacy continues to inspire and captivate admirers of mid-century modern design. The Maracana side table, with its timeless design and expert construction, stands as a prime example of Scapinelli's ability to seamlessly blend traditional Brazilian materials with the refined aesthetics of mid-century Italian design. It is a true testament to his enduring impact on the world of furniture design.
