Pierre Bergé & associates
Brazilian Design can look back to a long history. Mix of European and native influences, it has evolved very fast creating it own identity, associating wood, cane and leather, materials so present in Brazil. When asked by the Gallery of Pierre Bergé & associates to reinterpret five vintage pieces, the studio wanted to confront vintage with contemporary reality. By using new proportions for the wood, marrying it to leather and giving the new pieces their own language. 'Pixelated' with a humorous touch. Brazilian wood being protected today, the contemporary versions have been made using noble wood such as ash tree or american walnut.
