Beautiful and super rare round dining table by Joaquim Tenreiro, Brazil 1960. The precision and attention to detail by Tenreiro are visible in every inch of this creation. Each curve and joint speak of his masterful understanding of the medium, transforming solid wood into an ethereal masterpiece. Made of solid rosewood, the table’s thin, round structure gracefully holds a smooth, transparent glass top, allowing to see the beauty of the minimalistic cross base. The legs of this table are slender, accentuating the table’s lightness. This incredibly rare dining table by Joaquim Tenreiro goes beyond just being useful. Its design is timeless, giving us a glimpse into the creative mind of a true artist.


Joaquim Tenreiro was born into a family of woodworkers and carpenters in Melo, Gouveia Municipality, Portugal. In the late 1920s, he moved to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and started working for the company Laubisch Hirth. During the early 1940s, Tenreiro became one of the pioneering designers in Brazil to embrace a modern European style. His first designs, like the “Poltrona Leve” created in 1942, gained significant popularity. Encouraged by this success, he established his own company in 1943, with factories in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. Notably, renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer became one of Tenreiro’s important clients, commissioning several pieces for his houses.


Although the Sergio Rodrigues chairs are not part of this listing, it’s a beautiful combination and they are available in another listing.
