Entries in Brazil (101)
Sorry that should read "apartment" not "jungle". What is it about Brazilian design that brings a smile to my face? The honesty, the simplicity, the sense of everyday style, the joy? I think I would feel right at home here and the abundance of indoor plants is only just a part of the reason. Love the deconstruction, the mix of iconic design pieces and the found, the wonderful light. Apartment renovation in São Paulo by RSRG Arquitetos.
Francisco Calio of São Paulo, Brazil based design firm Calio Interiors + Design is about as bold as they come. Pattern, colours, textures, modern furnishings and bold graphic artwork joined together make for some very high impact spaces. Lots of personality and energy. This man knows how to have fun and I don't think he takes life too seriously. .
A couple of months ago Jo featured a project by Brazilian architect Felipe Hess that was fresh and colourful with some fun graphic patterns. I came across this project of Felipe's that is quite the opposite. Not what we typically see from a Brazilian - this one is very subdued, modern and minimalist. I love it for those reasons. And because someone clearly has great taste in chairs (Hans Wegner's Hoop and Peacock).
