The Maria Bonita chair was created for a special context, the Pavilion of Brazil at Expo 2015 in Milan, a project by Studio Arthur Casas that won the competition to represent the nation at the event. Alongside the Lampião chair, Maria Bonita brought a taste of the sertão culture to the interactive space. They are named after two leaders of the cangaço, a renowned social movement that occurred in the northeastern region of Brazil in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The chairs draw inspiration from the symbol of their attire, the wide-brimmed hat typically made of thick and sturdy leather. This leather element adorns the structure of the light-colored wooden chair, forming the backrest. The initial pieces were developed by Italian artisans and produced by the brand Poliform, serving as the foundation for our current manufacturing process, which is carried out in Brazil.
