Trained as an industrial engineer, Franca repurposes hardwood from fallen Pequi trees in Bahia, Brazil, and fashions them into stunning monumental furniture and sculptural works that call to mind George Nakashima, Constantin Brancusi, Isamu Noguchi and Henry Moore in equal parts. This stunning clothbound volume presents 20 finished tables, benches and objects alongside documentary photographs of Franca and his work team as they locate, cut and transport the wood to his studio. Published to accompany Franca's 2008 exhibition at R 20th Century Gallery in New York.
