In recent times, Brazil has become as celebrated for contemporary design as for coffee (with an awful lot of that, as the old song goes).
This show highlights around 40 modern furniture designers, from famous trail-blazers such as Oscar Niemeyer and Sergio Rodrigues, to current global superstars such as the Campana brothers.
We particularly like the Agua table (2008) in recycled cardboard and glass by Domingos Tótora. And the Three Feet chair designed in 1947 by Joaquim Tenreiro to show off five types of solid wood. The Rio chaise (1978-79) is by Oscar and Anna Maria Niemeyer.
