I`ve decided to share with you guys a few designs of one of my favourite Brazilian designers, Mendes-Hirth. Fernando Mendes de Almeida and Roberto Hirth are based in Rio and have been working together since 2002. Both are industrial designers and carpenters with loads of experience. The mid century influence is obvious, and some designs may remind you of Sérgio Rodrigues: Fernando is his cousin and worked with him for seven years.
The duo create pieces that do not need to be assembled with screws or nails, which I find a very very hard thing to do! So, they got my admiration and respect! That`s what I call a true Brazilian design!
