São Paulo, Brazil
Modern Brazilian design carefully selected
In a world where information is everywhere and easily accessible, the role of curatorship has never been so important. How to identify the best noble Brazilian woods and the authentic designer pieces? How many antique fairs should you visit to built your taste? And how many trips, talks and meetings with professionals does it take to train your eyes?
Located in Pinheiros, São Paulo, since 2007, Teo dedicates his life in search of unique pieces, and has become a reference in Brazilian modern design. His impeccable curatorship offers an exclusive selection of collectible objects and furniture designed by the greatest names of Brazilian design during 1950s through the 1970s.
Jorge Zalszupin, Joaquim Tenreiro, Sergio Rodrigues, Branco e Preto, among many others designers, are presented side by side with other anonymous unique pieces. In his gallery, Teo presents original findings that proves the excellence of Brazilian modern production.
Modern Brazilian Furniture: a cultural patrimony to be worshipped
Local jacarandá, jatobá, pau ferro, ipê and angelim wood, Brazil is known for its wonderful raw materials. It’s not by accident that the country is an amazing source of craftsmanship, even if not fully acknowledged. One of Teo’s main missions is to give opportunities to local artists, by employing several of them as world class restorers.
The gallery works with a group of master craftsmen, carefully giving new life to historical pieces - and maintaining their original techniques at the same time. That teamwork makes up to a pioneer company, aimed to preserve and promote Brazilian design - a valuable asset not only to the country, but the whole world.
