Sergio Rodrigues (1927-2014) was the most famous and influential of the great noble fathers of Brazilian design. His furnishings have been defined as a perfect embodiment of the spirit of Brazil: they are cheerful and relaxed, illuminated by a playful irony, yet they maintain a strong sense of refined luxury intact. The woods most used by Sergio Rodrigues in the massive structures of his seats are also typically Brazilian, from Jacaranda to Imbuia, warm essences that contribute to the welcoming appearance of his furnishings. All these characteristics are summarized in his most famous creation, the Mole armchair, awarded in 1961 at the IV Cantù International Furniture Competition and part of the permanent collection of the MoMA in New York. Rodrigues' activity as a designer began in 1955 with the foundation of his brand Oca Industries, active for over twenty years, through which he brought the then pioneering Brazilian design into modernity. Since 2001, his creations have been reissued by the LinBrasil brand, whose entire catalog is entirely dedicated to his work. Furthermore, the Atelier Sergio Rodrigues is still active, even after the death of the founder, and is dedicated to a limited series production of the great master's most sculptural pieces, including the wonderful Chifruda armchair.
