Collectible Now: Brazilian Modernity delves into the distinctive style of Brazilian design, past and present. This selection highlights the essence of Brazilian modernism, which emerged as a significant movement in the 20th century, reflecting the country’s unique cultural and socio-political context. At the core of Brazilian modernism lies a fervent exploration of functionality, and an inclination towards minimalism, inspired by the rich natural surroundings of Brazil. Embracing organic shapes and using natural materials, the work establishes a visual dialogue with nature and blurs the boundaries between the man-made and the organic. Works by Brazilian designers Zanine Caldas, Joaquim Tenreiro, Carlo Hauner, and Martin Eisler are among the designers whose works illustrate these principles. Their designs paved the way for contemporaries and informed the evolution of Brazilian design over time, as presented in dialogue, the celebrated Campana Brothers, whose works are also featured.
