What was it like to work with Oscar Niemeyer?
I worked with Oscar all during the 1950s and 1960s, but especially in 1956 during the planning of Brasília. I see him as a god of artwork. When we were working together it was the boom of modern architecture and design in Brazil, so it was a very exciting time.
How many Chifruda chairs will you produce?
Now that there's interest in the chair, we are producing 40 of them through custom order.
How do you feel about the price being $20,000? That's quite a lot.
I don't really like to think about the money. It's not so important to me.
Can you share any memories of Kim?
