$ 7,497
  • Description
    This stunning set of Arco armchairs, designed by the iconic Sérgio Rodrigues, was made to furnish the exquisite interior of the Itamaraty Palace, also known as Palácio dos Arcos, a masterpiece of Oscar Niemeyer. Rodrigues was responsible for creating and producing furniture for many projects in Brasília, including the Palácio da Alvorada and the city's National Theater, cementing his reputation as one of the most important mid-century Brazilian designers.

    Upholstered in natural suede and crafted from solid Brazilian hardwood, these armchairs boast a simple yet elegant design, making them the perfect addition to any interior. The craftsmanship of these pieces is impeccable, and they were restored to their original beauty by one of our best craftsmen. Rodrigues's incredible ability to use tropical wood in innovative and creative ways is a hallmark of his designs. Along with Joaquim Tenreiro and José Zanine Caldas, he helped to transform Brazilian design into industrial design and made it known worldwide. The simple lines and elegant design of the Arco armchair perfectly embody the Brazilian spirit that Rodrigues so often spoke about, as he believed that a piece of furniture should have its own unique spirit and reflect the culture of the country in which it was created.

    In addition to this stunning pair, we also have more chairs of the Arco model available, all crafted with the same impeccable attention to detail and exceptional materials. This set of Arco armchairs is a true testament to the beauty and quality of Brazilian design, making it a must-have for any collector or design enthusiast.
