Widely consider the first modern master of Brazilian design, Joaquim Tenreiro created many timeless classics. His contribution to Brazilian design is evident by his designs that made hardwood furniture sleeker and lighter. Tenreiro’s 1947 Three-Legged chair was laminated in multiple woods that included native species such as imbuia, roxinho, jacaranda, ivory, and cabreúa. In this example, the chair is made in five different types of hard wood, with bonded laminated. The chair celebrates the material with its inventive form and combinations of wood.  100+ Best Modern Seating Designs from Bring the Best of Brazilian Modernism to Your Home with This New Book
