Sergio Rodrigues

In 1955, Sergio Rodrigues founded Oca, an Ipanema-based brand focused on the development of modern Brazilian furniture. Rodrigues established a new paradigm in design and set himself apart with his very own language in his quest for a clearly recognizable Brazilian identity. He became notorious for his use of native materials such as jacaranda, peroba and imbue woods to create quintessential icons. His work represents Brazil in many ways, relaxed and comfortable yet sophisticated and contemporary.
