Known as being a “sculptor of monuments”, Oscar Niemeyer has been praised for being one of the greatest architects of his generation. Most famous for his signature use of abstract forms and curves which is exemplified in the Rio Chaise Longue.

A classic, timeless piece, the Rio chaise was designed in collaboration with his daughter Anna Maria Niemeyer in 1978 and is made from curved compressed laminated wood lacquered in black with Brazilian artisan wicker work.

Much like his architecture, Niemeyer’s limited furniture designs celebrate the beauty of the female form and geographical elements of Rio de Janeiro.

The Rio Chaise Longue is available for the first time at the London ESPASSO showroom at 19 Greek Stree.
