Oscar Niemeyer 1907 – 2012

Curve wanted to pay a small tribute to the 104 year old Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer who sadly died last week. A pioneer of modern architecture, his work is famous for the use of abstract forms and curves. Here is one of his quotes which is a particular favourite inspiration in our studio. 

“It’s not the right angle that attracts me, nor the straight line—stiff, inflexible, created by men. What really attracts me is the free, sensual curve. The curve I see on the sinuous course of our rivers, on the clouds in the sky, on your favorite woman’s body. The universe is entirely made of curves.” Oscar Niemeyer
