Jorge Jabour Mauad Furnas dining table Brazil 1960





An exquisite large sized dining table designed by Jorge Jabour Mauad and manufactured by Moveis Cantu, Brazil 1960. The table features a solid rosewood structure which is beautifully finished and constructed and this reminds a lot of the Brazilian movement from that period. The rosewood features beautiful dark tones and flames in the wood which make rosewood so unique. The table perfectly represents the Brazilian Modernist movement and the architects hired to design and furnish the new capital Brasilia in 1960. For example, the designs by Sergio Rodrigues are very similar. This large table belonged to Furnas, a regional power utility and major subsidiary of Eletrobras (National Electricity company) that was founded in 1957 and it till has the patrimony plaque on the side of the structure. Architects Jorge Jabour Mauad and Osires Cunha Meale were responsible for designing for Cantù Móveis e Interiores Ltda. This production represents a vast production of Brazilian furniture designed by architects and manufactured by small companies in the 1960s. The specialists were responsible for conducting studies and projects for interior installations, using Brazilian Rosewood, marbles, leathers, and national fabrics in its manufacture. This large table can use up to 12 chairs and because of the laminated top it is easy to use and keep clean. Laminate is a very durable product which also looks great in contrast with the dark rosewood. Table is in very good condition, top is slightly bent but thats negligible and fits its age. The tables structure has 4 adjustable feet to adjust the table in case of an inequal floor. The chairs on the pictures are not included but can be purchased in another listing.
