Galerie Chastel-Maréchal

Lounge chair in plywood, cotton rope and original removable matress, in leather. Moveis Z production. This lounge chair is characteristic of the 1st period of Zanine Caldas’ work. In 1949, he created the Fabrica de Moveis Z which continued until 1953. Exploiting the possibilities of plywood and chipboard, production was based on the precarious nature of the industrial situation in Brazil where, Caldas felt, nothing should be wasted. This social enterprise played an important role in the history of Brazilian design. Looking for innovative solutions in order to preserve Nature, Zanine Caldas uses plywood here. The use of this material constrasts with noble leather. The graphic line of the structure and the formal simplicity makes these pieces timeless. This model has become an icon of Brazilian design.
