Extraordinary set of Oscar armchairs by Sergio Rodrigues manufactured by OCA in Brazil 1956. These chairs pay tribute to the renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer. Born from the Hauner Sofa, Sergio Rodrigues’ first furniture creation in 1954, the Oscar armchair represents the evolution of his artistic vision. Made with meticulous craftsmanship, these chairs showcase the remarkable beauty of grained hardwood. The rich, natural hues of the wood add a touch of warmth to any space, creating a sense of inviting luxury.


The hardwood seamlessly extends from the legs to the armrests. The armrests have a slight curve that adds visual charm and makes them pleasant to lean on. They gently bend outward, providing extra space and making the sitting experience even more enjoyable. The backrest is tilted, offering the perfect angle for relaxation. The cane seats and backs, intricately woven, provide a blend of comfort and style that is both durable and visually pleasing. Every detail of these armchairs, from the flowing wood to the curved armrests and tilted backrests, harmonises beautifully.


Rodrigues was a highly influential Brazilian designer during the mid-century era. He had a remarkable talent for using tropical woods in unique and creative ways. Alongside Joaquim Tenreiro and Jorge Zalszupin, Rodrigues played a key role in popularising Brazilian design on a global scale. Rodrigues not only excelled as an architect and designer but also pioneered the integration of Brazilian design into industrial practices, gaining international acclaim. His furniture pieces went beyond their physical form and materials – they embodied the spirit of Brazil, reflecting the essence of Brazilian furniture.
