Oscar Niemeyer By Etel

Alongside his public buildings, Oscar Niemeyer designed countless pieces of furniture, driven by the need to fix “the problem with furniture arrangements”. The great master thought that beautiful modernist and contemporary architecture was often diminished by the presence of inadequate pieces of furniture… Together with his daughter, Anna Maria, he created many iconic designs including the Rio rocking chair, the Marquesa bench and the Alta armchair. Over time, he launched ON, a line of furniture comprising a deska sofa and an armchair. Free from the strict rules of functionalism, he injected sensuality and “Brasilidade” into his work finding beauty through asymmetry and curves.
