We do feel that like the curvaceous creations of Oscar Niemeyer Furniture, true curves—unapologetic curves—will never go out of style.
A native Brazilian and famed architect, Oscar Niemeyer was introduced to design by way of Le Corbusier, who along with Niemeyer, was assembled to erect a ministry of Education and Health in Rio de Janeiro. Le Corbusier’s streamlined style heavily influenced a young Niemeyer, though his affinity for curves eventually led to him opting for a less-than-straight road. Inspired by the female form and the sculpted hills of Guanabara Bay, Oscar Niemeyer pieces came to include the Rio rocking chair and Alta chair. True to their origins and the spirit of the 1970s— they simply seduce.
