Description

Galerie Chastel-Maréchal

Important low table made of exotic wood with four airplane wing shaped legs. On each foot, notches to set the marble top. This coffee table is the perfect demonstration of the Celina Zilberberg’s savoir-faire. The slender legs give a sense of lightness and reminds us of Joaquim Tenreiro's elegant style. In 1938, Celina Zilberberg created the company Tapeçaria Sao Jorge. In the 60’s the Celina's firm became known as the Sergio Rodrigues’ Oca company. Thanks to the Brazilian modernist leaders such as Oscar Niemeyer, the idea of Brazilian modernism came to be. From the traditional arts to the Portuguese influence, wood was the heart of the conception. The economy of resources reveals the period's concerns which had led to the creation of pure and elegant pieces.
