History of designer: Joaquim Tenreiro is a leading visual artist and furniture designer in mid-20th century Brazil. Before commencing his well-known work for Laubisch Hirth, he lived in Melo, Gouveia, Portugal and was born into a family of carpenters and woodworkers. It did not take long for Tenreiro to become part of a pioneering batch of designers that adopted a European modernist vernacular in the Brazilian furniture industry.
Tenreiro's early works such as 1942's Poltrona Leve, achieved substantial success which allowed him to establish his independent firm with various factories located in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Oscar Niemeyer, a Brazilian architect, was one of Tenreiro's main clients. Niemeyer's estate housed an array of pieces that were originally commissioned from Tenreiro.
