Architectural coffee table made in Brazil 1960





Eye-catching architectural coffee table crafted by an anonymous architect in Brazil during the 1960s. The design has similarities to the style of Carlo Hauner and Martin Eisler, who were known for their use of these shapes in their designs. What truly stands out is the use of the stunning warm rosewood, with organic, almost paddle-like sides seamlessly joined together by slats and two gracefully contoured supports that hold the glass top.


This table is in fantastic condition, with the glass being newly made, ensuring it’s in perfect shape. While the identity of the designer remains a mystery, it only adds to the intrigue of this piece. Its quality speaks for itself, making it a unique example of Brazilian design.


When it comes to design style, Brazilian modernism shares some similarities with American and European styles. They all aim for practicality by using simple shapes that mix both straight lines and curves. However, what sets Brazilian modernism apart is the materials they used. In the 1950s, things like plastic and metal and fibreglass were hard to find in Brazil. So, designers there turned to things like wood, cane, leather, and wicker.


These natural materials gave Brazilian design a warmer and more touchable quality compared to the designs in the West, where they often used man-made materials. Another thing that makes Brazilian furniture special is how it was made. Most of it was handmade, not mass-produced in factories, until around 1966 to 1968. This means you can often find unique details and traditional craftsmanship in furniture from this time.
