The Paulistano chair

Paulistano The Barbican's celebrating Brazilian culture with its Tropicalia exhibition, so why not have a look at a Brazilian design classic?

The Paulistano chair, by Paolo Mendes da Rocha, was designed in 1957 as part of his first big project as an architect - a new gym for the Paulistano Athletics Club in Sao Paolo.

These easy chairs are made from a single piece of tubing, with leather or canvas cover. Only 350 were made for sale, but now they're back on the market in five colours of leather with black iron or chrome steel frames.

Still not cheap though - they cost around £775.
