Studio visit with Sergio Rodrigues
While in Rio de Janeiro, I had the honor of visiting the studio of legendary Brazilian architect and designer Sergio Rodrigues. Sergio is probably most well-known outside Brazil for his chair designs, including his Mole (Poltrona, 1957) and Kilin chairs. [Lots of photos on his site, it’s flash so I can’t link to individual pages. And the “album” section only works in the Portuguese version.]
With Sergio and his wife.

I couldn’t leave Rio without snagging one of Sergio’s beautiful 1954 Mocho stools, below. Thanks to Sergio for having me over, and to the Bold guys for facilitating. Obrigado!
