LinBrasil is exclusively dedicated to the work of Sergio Rodrigues and has in its portfolio 56 furniture pieces including the most iconic created by the master throughout his 60 years of work in furniture design. The company was created by the entrepreneur Gisèle Pereira Schwartsburd. Coming from a family of furniture makers, Gisèle studied Industrial Design at the Federal University of Paraná, and then decided to devote herself to dance and theater. In 1999, while visiting an exhibition in a shopping mall in Rio de Janeiro, she reviewed her career.
“For a long time I had not been next to the armchairs by Sergio Rodrigues. I once again was under the spell of his Brazilian essence, the Brazilian culture embodied in a piece of furniture of modern design, fashioned in solid wood, the joints, and the sensuous and curving lines. However, there was no place where I could buy one of his creations. At the time, the market was dominated by globalized design, and the master’s genius was completely out of reach”, says Gisèle.
