Sergio Rodrigues, Brazil, 1990s
Sergio Rodrigues's career spanned six decades, and he always kept the spirit of Rio in his work. While this lounge chair is from the 1990s, the idea of relaxation and leisure carries the optimism of the 1950s. Rodrigues's own store Oca had closed in 1968, but the architect and designer continued building partnerships with different woodshops to produce his creations.

The Mesa Parker dining suite commission was designed in 1978 by Sergio Rodrigues for the Parker family in Rio de Janeiro. The meticulous construction in woodworking is demonstrated to a substantial degree in the complex interlocking elements that comprise the underside support of the table. Rodrigues’s thoughtful attention to detail in the design additionally shows how the beauty of the object can be seen not only in the construction, material, and finish but also in its effect as a compelling focal point of everyday life. Tellingly, the Mesa Parker commission remained one of Rodrigues’s favorite designs throughout his prolific career.

Shortly after starting the architecture program at the University of Brazil (now the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro), Sergio Rodrigues found a passion for interior design. After graduating, he began designing his own furniture, and by the 1960s, had a thriving business. The Vronka armchair was designed in 1962 for his Meia Pataca line, which Rodrigues created aiming for a broader client base. While admirable, his architecture remains overshadowed by his prolific furniture design career.
