Joaquim Tenreiro (1906-1992)

Set of three armchairs
circa 1960

Jacaranda legs and fabric. Very architectural, this model of armchairs is designed in the 60’s. Our armchairs have a different base than the other ones illustra- ted in the vintage documentation. The four slender legs, in shape of airplaine wing, are characteristic of Joaquim Tenreiro’s work.

Height 65 cm (25 1⁄2 in) - Width 95 cm (37 1⁄2 in) - Depth 82 cm (32 1⁄4 in)

Provenance : This set of three arm- chairs comes from an appartement located in Ipanema whose the architecture and the interior design have been designed by Joaquim Tenreiro for an important family from Rio de Janeiro, at the end of the 50's.
