Joaquim Tenreiro, Brazil, 1948

Dining table in jacaranda with red laminate and inset glass top.

Tenreiro furnished houses designed by Oscar Niemeyer, Lucio Costa, Sérgio Bernardes, Francisco Bolonha, and others. That put him in direct dialogue with these modern architects and complemented what MoMA had called "some of the finest modern architecture not only in this Hemisphere but in the world."
