Mid-century classics in São Paulo
Mauricio Arruda, architect and designer, living in São Paulo. To achieve a dialogue between old and new, Mauricio redesigned the spaces, utilizing materials and finishings that were iconic to the 1950's palette and modern expression with a unique mix of furniture. The 150 meters squared apartment went through major architectural renovation as Mauricio knocked down all the walls except the central pillar that structurally holds the space together. This decision immediately speaks to Brasil's current free spirited nature and invites ample sunlight into the entire apartment, a staple of today's Brasil interior experiences.
"I redid this place to work as my laboratory of ideas that surround my mind. It is a reflection of my mood, my memories, my view on things, and what grabs my attention in the world.'' Mauricio Arruda
Many of the items in the appartment are designed by Mauricio himself. I find the dining room table "House of Cards" together with Jasper Morrison´s "Air" green folding chairs a perfect mix and match.
