R & Company

Carlo Hauner and Martin Eisler were the leading designers for Forma. The international company epitomized the innovation of the Brazilian modern design industry. Working out of São Paulo when the city was rapidly growing and at the peak of industrialization provided Eisler and Hauner with the opportunity to produce custom furniture. They both shared an appreciation for elevated design and their intention with Forma was to bring style into the Brazilian household. Their designs for Forma embodied the elegance of unique works coming out of the traditional ateliers of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo in the mid 20th century but unlike their contemporaries, Eisler and Hauner customized production. They created highly crafted modern furniture, using rich local materials such as hardwood, leather, and iron resulting in polished and diverse pieces that were accessible to a larger audience.
