Native-Nordic: Canada and QuÃ©bec, have always been in an identity struggle. I think it’s our job as creatives to celebrate this mixed background. Rodrigo Almeida is a Brazilian designer, and like the Campana brothers (also from Brazil), he celebrates his rich and diverse culture. Without being obvious in references, he is very productive and explores many materials. It’s maybe not the most functionnal furniture in the world, but these expressive objects justify themselves.
