Behind the doors at 454 Rua Javaés, Bom Retiro district, furniture and objects from 1940’s to 1970’s are housed, from a period considered by many the golden age of modern design. Although the emphasis is on Brazilian pieces, it is possible to find pieces designed by artists from different parts of the world.
The researcher’s gaze can see, in an often decharacterized piece, the lines and curves that make it unique. The essential work is to return it to its original brilliance: the wood, the tapestry, everything is treated carefully and in detail so we can discover again the design lying underneath. It is what Teo and Lis Vilela, their team and artisans do.
In the Teo Warehouse, Brazilian furniture becomes both sustainable and affordable. There lies little anonymous jewels whose shapes take us directly to another era. Finally, the world of modernist design is thus open to new looks and placed within the reach of all.
