BRAZIL MODERN by Aric Chen.
While filming in São Paulo a few years ago, I happened upon a #LinaBoBardi chair in a home she once owned. Born in Italy, Bardi studied architecture at the University of Rome, where she collaborated with Gio Ponti before moving to Rio de Janeiro and falling in love with the lush surroundings and modernist architecture of Brazil. She studied the culture there with the eye of an anthropologist, particularly interested in the convergence of modern art and popular tradition. I found this book by Aric Chen at a furniture store in São Paulo, and spent the whole flight back to New York reading her magnificent story.
