"Vronka" lounge chair with jacaranda frame and upholstered leather seat and headrest. Designed by Sérgio Rodrigues, Brazil, 1962.
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.
