Saccaro Cobogo Launch with Helio CastronevesPosted on: November 12th, 2014 by SoFlaNights.com
Luiz and Katia Silva, owners of Saccaro USA, together with special guest Helio Castroneves, Brazilian Indycar driver and also ‘Dancing with the Stars Season 5’ Champion, hosted the launch party of Saccaro‘s Cobogó armchair, by award-winning designer Roque Frizzo. Guests were able to meet & greet with Roque Frizzo & Helio Castroneves, and view the incredible mid-Century-inspired furniture and home accessories at Saccaro Miami’s glamorous Midtown Miami showroom. The evening also featured Brazilian grooves by DJ Fabio Soul, a special Samba de Gafieira performance, and one lucky guest was winner of a Cobogó armchair (retail value of $3,964).
The limited-edition Cobogó armchair, featuring hand-woven leather on the side panels and back, is made of solid Louro Canela wood, and is offered in six different finishes—sbiancato, nocce, cocoa, malto, chocolate and nogueira. The chair’s signature lattice design is reminiscent of the cobogó brick used in buildings in Brazil since the 1920s, both for ventilation and as a decorative element.
