With an extensive production of design, flourishing between 1940 and 1970, designers such as Joaquim Tenreiro, Sergio Rodrigues, Lina Bo Bardi, José Zanine Caldas, Oscar Niemeyer and Jorge Zalszupin changed the face of modern Brazilian furniture bringing it to the forefront of Latin American cultural expression during the middle of the 20th Century. The compositions of photographer Ruy Teixeira express the refinement of the pieces in question. Through his work he reveals layers of interpretation and enjoyment for the lovers of this period, through a dialogue with the works and through the historical context of each piece. Parallel to the compositions are the texts by historian Jayme Vargas, who takes the reader through the pulsating and uncertain trajectory of Brazilian modernism, synthesizing, in an elucidative way.
