Branco and Preto M1 Sofa in Caviuna Wood, Brazil 1960s


Caviuna sofa designed by Branco & Preto model M-1, Brazil 1960s

This sofa by designer collective Branco & Preto follows function over form with a clear and rational design. The solid caviuna structure is both functional and aesthetic and contrasts nicely with the lush velvet upholstery. The cushions have built-in springs which allow surprisingly soft seating, especially considering the strong lines that give the sofa a somewhat firm and square appearance. The well sized sofa offers room for three (maybe 4) people.

This M 1 sofa comes with it’s original upholstery. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for the possibilities for re-upholstery, we work with some of the best upholsterers in the Netherlands. 

About the designer:

São Paulo 1950. In a time when communication wasn’t abundant and import was still rare, a group of young architects and idealists gathered to solve a new problem. How to decorate the projects that came out of the group's drawing boards with furniture that represented the architecture they practiced. Enthusiastically they welcomed the idea of group member Roberto Aflalo: to create a store and studio that would sell furniture with a modern design, while using Brazilian raw material and making sure it had an impeccable finish.
