Where to find

An incomplete prototype was presented in 1991 during a great retrospective exhibit of Sergio Rodrigues' work in the Museum of Modern Art of Rio de Janeiro. About three prototypes were made for the occasion and one of them was kept in the studio's storage unit. The project's conclusion only depended on the shape of the headrest, a few options were tested unsuccessfully. In the beginning of 2013, Sergio Rodrigues sketches a simple line defining the contour of the headrest in a croquis of the armchair - the design was complete! The chair called by the creator's nickname, Xibô, finally came to life.
