The exhibition “Coleção Museu da Casa Brasileira” (MCB Collection) presents the institutional collection from a selection of furniture and representative objects of the Brazilian home from the 17th century until the present day. The exhibition consists of rest furniture, objects and utensils in various materials (wood, leather, fabric and metal, among others).
The collection is arranged by function, such as sleeping, listening, praying, sitting down and serving with the intention to have a look at the sets together by common traits. Without intending to establish a linear approach, the groups provide a horizontal view of the collection, allowing reflection on the peculiarities and similarities between the parts that compose the domestic environment in Brazil.
The exhibition allows visitors to observe together parts that had different influences, from the Trumai seat, of indigenous origin, to the European-style furniture. National design icons are also present, including the Mole armchair (1957) by Sergio Rodrigues; the Paulistano chair (1957) by Paulo Mendes da Rocha, winner of the 1st Design Award; and the Girafa chair (1987) by Lina Bo Bardi, Marcelo Ferraz and Marcelo Suzuki.
