Pedro Paulo Venzon is a designer who has produced objects and artifacts, and whose concern is to create furniture design that arises from a decolonial reading of the discussions surrounding contemporary and modem design in Brazil.
Since 2011, when he finished his academic studies, he has received important prizes In both Brazilian and international scenario, there is currently engagement with the production of syntheses between the authorial and industrial, the local and the global, between tradition and its displacements.
Pedro Paulo Venzon has a unique style and has been producing minimalist objects and furniture since 2011. He combines Brazil’s love of colour and vivacity with simple and clean lines that come from a more modernist and pragmatic perspective. Let’s take the Pudica Chair, one of his minimalist, metal chairs. If the striking, geometric angles don’t grab you and have you lusting to have one of your own, then the polished metal will. The choice of carbon steel and solid brass is a nod to the prevalence of steel manufacturing used in furniture in Brazil in the 50’s. The simple curves and aesthetic shapes of his furniture are merged from two different periods, the early 20th Century and the Brazilian colonial experience. There’s a simple economy to his work with its smooth curves and crisp lines.
