Kiko Office chairs, by Sergio Rodrigues for Oca, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1964

After Sergio Rodrigues designed the furnishings for the Brazilian embassy in Rome, in 1960, he was commissioned to create the furniture of the new Brazilian foreign office building, Palácio dos Arcos, or Itamaraty. The main characteristic of the so called IT Project, which included iconic pieces like the Eleh bench or the Millor sofa, is the use of square massive sections of jacarandá wood and chrome finishings. The PO-027 armchair, known as Kiko, exists in 4 combinations : low, high, with or without wheels.
