Martin Eisler, Brazil, 1950s

Martin Eisler designed this exquisite dining table for Forma in the 1950s. His inspirations for the piece reflect how the architect and designer managed to merge European and Brazilian references to create something unique. The sleek wood structure reflects both a mastery of craftsmanship and international design trends. At the same time, the cane top was inspired by vernacular cane ceiling linings seen in Latin-American rural architecture.

Dining table in caviona wood with cane and glass top. First produced in Argentina, then Brazil, by Forma.
