This unusual table was created by Joaquim Tenreiro for a Rio apartment in 1958. The designer made few of these, and each had a unique geometry. Tenreiro furnished houses designed by Oscar Niemeyer, Lucio Costa, Sérgio Bernardes, Francisco Bolonha, and others, which put him in direct dialogue with these modern architects and complemented what MoMA called "some of the finest modern architecture not only in this Hemisphere but in the world."
