One to Watch: Sérgio J. Matos


Brazilian product designer Sérgio J. Matos’ brightly coloured furniture is deeply connected to Brazilian popular culture – bringing to attention its use of pure and alive colours and the constant influence of crafts such as basketry and weaving.

His most acclaimed pieces are the Xique-Xique side table that is composed of geometrical pieces of wood assembled to look like a particular cactus found in the northeast of Brazil, and the new Balao chair (pictured) that is made of diamond shaped iron structures completed with interwoven pieces of coloured cotton strings.
