Brazilian furniture company Etel is launching a new series of reissues, taking on the work of Italian-Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi. A collection of four pieces was presented this week, part of a larger range of 12 re-editions, which the company will release over the next year.

‘Etel's philosophy is to retell and preserve the history of Brazilian Design, and to value the artistic legacy of these great designers,’ explains Lissa Carmona, daughter of founder Etel Carmona and now at the helm of the family-run company. They produce furniture by living Brazilian architects and designers, alongside reissues by the likes of Oscar Niemeyer and Sérgio Rodrigues.
