This week, the new pieces from Henrique Steyer Furniture will be released in São Paulo, Brazil. The collection highlight will be the Onça Bookshelf, inspired in the jaguar, a typical Brazilian animal in threat of extinction.
This astonishing piece, with an unusual shape and large proportions, is composed by several parts mixing wood and black lacquer finishes. It is positively a sculpture that doubles as storage for books and objects. The official release will happen at the MuBE (Brazilian Sculpture Museum), where maker Moora Design will present pieces from Henrique Steyer Furniture alongside another design heavyweights such as Marcelo Rosenbaum and Zanini de Zanine.
After the São Paulo release, the Onça Bookshelf sails to Milan, Italy, where it will represent Brazil in the world’s largest design event, that happens in April.
