Brazil Modern: Leonard Joel x Mama Casa

It is with great pleasure that Leonard Joel, in collaboration with Mama Casa, presents highlights of ETEL’s Brazil Modern collection, for sale and viewing in an Australian debut. This collection brings together iconic pieces by Brazil’s most renowned designers from the mid century period.

We are thrilled to showcase these pieces in a curated exhibition at Leonard Joel Melbourne. The collection features works by Oscar Niemeyer in collaboration with his daughter Anna, Jorge Zalszupin, Lina Bo Bardi and Zanine Caldas, alongside pieces by contemporary designers Etel Carmona and Lia Siqueira. The pieces are exquisitely crafted by skilled artisans, honouring traditional techniques, and bringing a deep understanding of native Brazilian wood to their work.

All pieces are handmade to order, with an embedded seal certifying the authenticity of the piece, provided by the foundation representing the designer.

‘What distinguishes Brazilian design is the use of a great variety of woods, the excellent craftsmanship, and the close influence of architecture and art on design” – Lissa Carmona, CEO of ETEL.

“The exhibition includes the iconic Rio Rocking-Chaise, Alta Armchair and ON Sofa designed by Oscar Niemeyer. Lina Bo Bardi is represented by her enigmatic Bola de Latao Chair and Jorge Zalszupin signature pieces include the Annette Armchair, Dinamarquesa Armchair, the impressive Presidencial Sofa and stylish JZ Trolley.” – Anna Grassham, Head of Modern Design, Leonard Joel
