When it comes to design, Brazil is a hotbed of talent especially when it comes to furniture. From old masters including Oscar Niemeyer and Jorge Zalszupin to the younger guard including Zanini de Zanine and Jader Almeida… we just can’t get enough of their unique brand of contemporary, modernist style. So as you might imagine, when I recently stumbled upon the fresh furniture art of Pedro Paulo Venzon, I couldn’t help but thrill inside. A mere four years out of school, Pedro’s work has won him awards on both the national and international scenes and today, Pedro spends his time producing a combination of industry aimed projects and personal works. While Pedro’s style feels truly his own, his focus lies in “creat[ing] pieces that arise from a particular reading of the discussions surrounding contemporary and modem design in Brazil.” With an abundance of talent and a design ethos rooted in Brazil’s rich design history… I guess there’s little wonder we’re loving what we see.
