Joaquim Tenreiro, Cadeira de tres pes (Three Legged Chair) 1947. Walnut, ivory, wood, rosewood and mahogany roxinho. "A light that has nothing to do with the weight itself, but with graciousness, functionality into their spaces." This found great resonance in modernist architects like Oscar Niemeyer, its major customer. Tenreiro designed furniture for Niemeyer's houses and created pieces which adapted to the tropical heat of the country, using the straw abundamente and the Brazilian timbers.
