Kilin Armchair by Sergio Rodrigues

In 1973,  Sergio Rodrigues designed the Kilin armchair at his wife’s request. She wanted a practical piece that could be easily moved around.  The ingenious design of the Kilin, evident of Rodrigues’ signature forms and materials, consists of a wood frame and leather sling slipcover that are easily assembled by dowels and pins while considerably lighter than Rodrigues’ other iconic armchairs.  With its name derived from an abbreviated version of Rodrigues’ tender nickname for his wife, ‘esquilinho’ (or ‘small squirrel’), the Kilin is a straightforward and versatile armchair that quickly became a Brazilian design classic and bears a little of Rodrigues’ personal history within it.
