Where to find

Xibô was a nickname for Sergio Rodrigues given by his wife, Vera Beatriz, and meant "silly Chinese", because Sergio used to squeeze his eyes when telling jokes. The "Chinese hat" serves as the dome of the Xibô lamp. For the base, Sergio created a sequence of wood veneers and applied his well-known holes. The decentralized mirrors at the bottom of the holes make the hole appear deeper than the luminaire itself.
