Following the success of the original Niemeyer armchair, Joana Santos Barbosa adds to her Identity Collection a new seductive design.
With its modernist curves, The Niemeyer II is a sophisticated armchair that gathers the beauty of the wool and the sturdiness of the natural oak, bringing to mind a sense of nature and wonder. Niemeyer II is named afterthe Brazilian Architect Oscar Niemeyer whose Architecture was spread like sculptural poetry in the History of humankind.
The Niemeyer II armchair is a redesign of the original Niemeyer armchair and named after the Brazilian Architect Oscar Niemeyer whose Architecture was spread like sculptural poetry in the History of humankind. The rounded lines of the armchair are influenced by the remarkable ‘Casadas Canoas’ designed by Niemeyer in 1951.
If looking through the human scale point of view, the glass facade disappears within the tropical forest, but from above, the sculpted concrete flatroof floats and stands out in the landscape.
The flat roof offers its flowing forms to the round seat. The backward movement of the curve that frames a large granite boulder is recreated by the location of the seams in a meticulous upholstered work that flows all around the arms of the armchair.
