Franco | Sergio Rodrigues
Mid-Century Modern "Franco" armchair designed by Sergio Rodrigues in 1962 made in Brazilian rosewood (jacaranda) with chrome cap details. Newly upholstered in black leather. Like many designers of Rodrigues generation, he dreams of commercializing well-designed furniture produced in series. In 1962 "Meia-Pataca" factory-cum-store was launch. The idea was to expand distribution and reduce production costs. The industrial thought its visible on the structural solution; applying juxtaposed wooden pieces of a square or rectangular section and straight corners. The other pieces like "Vronka", "Tonico" armchair and vitrine coffee table, "Franco" follows the same structural thought.
