Written by scholar Aric Chen for The Monacelli Press, the book surveys the history of Brazil’s iconic designers by exploring the innovations in material, form, and technique achieved during this period in time. Native hardwoods and craft traditions combined with European influences resulted in the signature style of Brazilian design.
