Jose Zanine Caldas, Brazil, 1970s

Console in solid Brazilian hardwood with inset glass from the estate of Zanine's secretary Lygia Fatima Silveira and Fernando.

José Zanine Caldas, who lived in many places throughout his life, settled in Rio during the 1960s. He looked at Brazilian woods for inspiration but chose to show their potential by denouncing the destruction of nature, making pieces with felled trees from the Atlantic forest.
