Opening this week at the galleries of Caixa Cultural in Rio de Janeiro is the travelling exhibition Design Brasileiro: Moderno & Contemporâneo. Exhibited in 2012 in Berlin, Germany, and then in Lisbon, Portugal, the exhibition unites over 80 pieces from the collection of Raul Schmidt Felippe Jr., curated by the keen eye of young Brazilian designer Zanini de Zanine.  Evident of the critical and transformative tradition in Brazilian design, the exhibition showcases classic modern pieces by icons such as Sergio Rodrigues, Lina Bo Bardi, Jorge Zalszupin, Oscar Niemeyer, Joaquim Tenreiro, José Zanine Caldas, Aída Boal and Paulo Mendes da Rocha, along a selection of pieces by contemporary designers as Zanini de Zanine, Carlos MottaCampana Brothers, Rodrigo Almeida, Gustavo Bittencourt, among others.
