Overview

The Giro Sculpture Table was designed by Pedro Paulo-Venzon for Spanish brand Viccarbe. The Giro Sculpture Table perfectly represents the symbiosis of sculpture and balance. Minimalist table with clean lines and simple forms: the oak bowl rests on a curved metal frame consisting of a circle and a line that form its legs_ that evokes the “slashed O”, the emblem of Brazilian designer Pedro Paulo-Venzon. This table is revisiting Brazilian design's high modernism period and reinventing the tradition of Brazilian furniture. For custom colors, please contact us.

In a 2016 article, Monica Khemsurov of Sight Unseen refers to Pedro Paulo-Venzon as the hip new face of Brazilian Design: “[...] why the work of Pedro Paulo Venzon is so exciting: He’s the first young up-and-coming Brazilian designer we’ve seen who’s totally nailing the delicate balance between paying homage to the legacy of his forebears, and developing an aesthetic that’s new, cool, and relevant to the international contemporary scene.” Pedro Paulo Venzon knew he belonged in the world of objects since he was a child, thanks to a carpenter father and seamstress / artisan mother. He has been making furniture, objects and artifacts in the city of Florianópolis since he graduated from school in 2011. His concern is to create pieces that arise from a decolonial reading of the discussions surrounding contemporary and modern design in Brazil. His inspiration: “a contemporary rereading of the elements of Brazilian design’s High Modernism period: the use of metal, the minimal lines, the simplicity. My design is “iterative” in a sense that retakes and transforms. My objective has been to rethink the traditions of Brazilian furniture — by designers such as Flávio de Carvalho and Lina Bo Bardi — and develop pieces that carry historical characteristics, but in an impure or hybrid or “mestizo” manner. “ Since 2011, when he finished his academic studies, he has received important prizes on the Brazilian and international design scene. In 2016 he was a finalist in the “Officine Panerai Next Generation Designer”, and in 2017 he took part in the Handmade Issue promoted by Wallpaper Magazine.
