Modern furniture in Brazil, by Maria Cecilia Loschiavo dos Santos, is an extensive work of research on the formation of modern Brazilian furniture as well as an effort to understand this concept that had so far been undervalued. In this respect, the book, in a way, rescues the cultural, aesthetic character of the furniture, amid technical and commercial problems. The book follows a perspective that comes from the origins of modern Brazilian furniture, in the 1920s, the most independent achievements from the 1960s to the 1980s, up to contemporary production. It provides us with an enlightening view of the history of our modern furniture and should be considered essential reading for students and all those interested in knowing the history of industrial or artisanal objects that are part of daily life.
