Created in the early 60’s by architects Guilherme Nunes and Savio Visconti, Fatima Arquitetura e Interiores, known as FAI, stirred the Carioca design panorama offering, like Celina Decoraçoes, cheaper rosewood furniture for the Rio de Janeiro High-middle class. They opened two galeries in Copacabana and Catete, where they organized cultural events which mixed architecture, decoration and art. The 1966’s collection presents ones of the most iconic pieces produced by FAI during two decades : benches, chairs and tables using rosewood, leather and cane. In partnership with Casa e Jardim magazine, Nunes and Visconti built the biggest interior design stand of the 1966 Feira do Atlantico in Copacabana ; the pictures of this post are part of February 1966 Casa e Jardim magazine. The success of cheaper, but still high quality furniture and the end of a few important furniture factories in 1968 like Oca or Tenreiro Moveis, turn FAI in one the most important Brazilian furniture companies.
