José Zanine Caldas cruciform wooden stool

Zanine Caldas, José, Stools, Brazil, 1970s

A cruciform, ebonized wooden stool by Brazilian designer José Zanine Caldas.

Zanine Caldas (1918-2001) was a self-taught Brazilian architect and designer. He made both sculptural, carved furniture from local woods and Modernist plywood furniture. In the early 1940s Zanine started the "Z Artistic Furniture" (“Móveis Artísticos Z”) line. In 1968, he moved to Nova Viçosa (Bahia), where he began with his 'Móveis Denúncia' (protest furniture) series, where he used reclaimed wood for his hand-made pieces.

The stool comes with a document of authentication.
