For BRAFA 2017 Galerie Le Beau presents a selection of 20th century furniture lighting and highlights the great names of Scandinavian design. Among them, Finn Juhl will be well represented with a sumptuous dining table in rosewood inlaid with silver , Arne Jacobsen and its iconic 'Giraffe chairs' specially made for the SAS Hotel in Copenhagen in 1958.
These classics of Scandinavian design will combine elegant pieces made by the masters of the Brazilian design Joaquim Tenreiro and Jorge Zalszupin. The 'Petalas' table by Zalszupin and the Tenreiro wall-mounted wooden double by Jacaranda honor the Brazilian tradition of exotic woodwork enhanced by their clean lines and unmatched modernity.
The Italian design will also be represented and punctuated by this dialogue between the different continents by its luxurious elegance. The prototype of the 'Carlton' library realized by Ettore Sottsass and a buffet by Paolo Buffa will summarize in their own way this opulence to the Italian.
