From a family of prominent Brazilian artists and intellectuals in Rio de Janeiro, Sergio Rodrigues took the passion for art and culture that surrounded him and shaped it into a carrer as one the Brazil’s most influential designers.

At the end of forties he, while still in the School of Architecture in Rio, perceived that Brazilian architecture was experiencing a moment of major significance. Just graduated he discovered that the interior of houses and buildings designed by Oscar Niemeyer, Lucio Costa and their colleagues did not meet the expectations of the constructions innovative spirit. “They used Colonial style furniture or imported pieces. Furniture was lacking the same national identity achieved in architecture” he recounts.
