Martin Eisler was born in Vienna in 1913, the son of a famous art historian. He began his career as a student in a firm of well-known architects but in 1938 moved to Buenos Aires, where he immediately held his first exhibition of drawings and furniture at the Mueller Gallery, the future Salon of Fine Arts. In 1945 he founded with Arnold Hacker "Interiur," a company that designed and sold furniture and furnishings. He later moved to Brazil where, in addition to establishing a new business, he deepened his interest in exotic woods and new techniques for painting and lacquering wood, glass and bronze. These two of Eisler's companies would later begin to work in synergy, producing highly successful furniture. Among the most famous pieces of his design are the Reversível and Costela chairs, still sold today by Tacchini. He is also highly regarded in the architectural field for his designs marked by a totalizing and detailed creativity.
