Bamboo Magazine Celebrates 60 years of Sergio Rodrigues’ Mocho Stool
Sixty years ago Sergio Rodrigues designed his first piece of furniture, marking the beginning of a celebrated career as designer and architect while branding Brazilian mid-century aesthetic along the way. That piece was the Mocho, which Rodrigues took inspiration from a traditional three-legged milking stool for its form and function. Playful, practical and unique, the design of the Mocho stool signals at signature elements that Rodrigues’ pieces would become famous for, making it a classic piece in the history of Brazilian design, available in the US and Europe exclusively at ESPASSO. Brazilian design magazine Bamboo did a feature on the Mocho on their current issue, celebrating the commencement of a new design era led by good-humored Rodrigues.
