Chifruda Sergio Rodrigues modern-armchairs
 

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The interest in producing a limited number of reissued Chifruda chairs was spurred when the original prototype showed up in a Rio de Janeiro pawn shop in 2010, after which Espasso and Rodrigues agreed to develop a 40-piece re-edition; 20 of the pieces have sold. Rodrigues, seen here, sits in his Chifruda, which translates to "cuckolded one" in Portuguese. For Rodrigues, designing spaces and furniture is something "in his blood" and the very thing that keeps him active. "If I weren't an architect, I would be sitting," he says. "Sleeping. Listening to other people tell stories."

Chifruda Sergio Rodrigues

Originally designed for the exhibition "Furniture as Work of Art" in 1962. The "Aspas" armchair, or ?Chifruda?, which is how the piece is more affectionately referred to in Rodrigues? office, was never produced save for a lost prototype in jacaranda. The term "Chifruda" popularly connotes the image of a wife whose husband is adulterous. This quality is typical of Rodrigues? unique sense of humor and wit, which characterizes an essential aspect of his design and architecture. At the request of the designer, the ?Chifruda? armchair is available numbered editions, and is sold exclusively at Espasso. Imbuia or freijó wood frame and leather. Edition of 40. — Cathy Lara
