Furniture Designed by Brazilian Architects

For some practitioners of architecture, the insatiable desire to draw everything, from the largest to the smallest to take full control of the project, echoes the famous phrase uttered by Mies Van Der Rohe: "God is in the details." Similarly, designing furniture provides another creative outlet for in-depth exploration of human-scale works of architecture.

Throughout the history of the Brazilian Architecture, and especially since the modernist movement, architects not only became known for their building designs, but also for their detailed chairs and tables. Several of these pieces of furniture were initially designed for a specific project and then went into mass production due to their popularity. 

In this impressive list of works, chairs and armchairs stand out for their incorporation of structural and technical-constructive qualities, materiality, ergonomics, and aesthetic lightness. Other pieces featured show the re-tooling and re-thinking of bars, carts, sideboards, tables, and other objects. 

Here are some of the most well-known and esteemed design objects created by Brazilian architects.

Why Does The Gender Pay Gap Issue Make People Uncomfortable?

Last week, ArchDaily covered a story about the gender pay gap at Foster + Partners. We thought such a story was "unsurprising" given that the gender pay gap is something that is widely reported on, and present in almost every industry, and we wanted to share a case of it happening in an architectural firm many of us are familiar with. What we did not expect was that readers would think it is a non-issue, or that such reporting was sensational. Is it possible for us to talk about gender in the workplace without being up in arms? Why does the gender pay gap issue make people uncomfortable? 

Some of our editors discussed how gender plays into their workplace experiences as well as some hopeful recent signs that we are on a path to change.

Joanna Wong: I think it’s important to first outline that the gender gap at Foster + Partners is a result of having less female representation in senior or managerial levels, rather than having women paid less for equivalent jobs that men do.

de seis pies de largo y tres de ancho, amontonado en forma piramidal, nos pondremos serios y en nuestro interior algo dirá: aquí hay alguien enterrado.
Esto es arquitectura.” Adolf Loos.

Somriures by Masquespacio | Doctors' surgeries

19 March, 2018 - 01:00

“Although the last years we have been focusing on projects related to hospitality and retail, we also like to face new challenges designing other projects like for an office space or in this case a dental clinic”, per Christophe Penasse, founder of Masquespacio. Alberto and Maite followed the work of Masquespacio since a while through social media and decided to contact them to realize the renova-tion of their dental clinic Somriures, which is situated in a small town called L’Alcudia, around 30 km away from Valencia. Being the specialty of Somriures the creation of ‘beautiful smiles’, the design from the dental clinic is highlighted through a sculpture of 2884 strips wooden strips that hang from the ceiling and overwhelm some of the main walls with the aim to recreate a smile. The sculpture above is the perfect guide to take the clients from one point to another. On the other hand, the turquoise green and white color combination creates a smooth feeling, while the small touche… continue
