This pair of small chairs was designed by Joaquim Tenreiro in 1960. They feature a structure in caviona wood, a curved cane back, a cane seat, and turned legs.

Tenreiro (1906-1992) was born in Portugal into a family of woodworkers and emigrated to Rio de Janeiro in the 1920s. He played a key role in disseminating modernist design ideas within Brazil as well as defining Brazilian design to the rest of the world. Oscar Niemeyer was one of his most high-profile champions and clients.
