Espasso Mole Armchair Espasso Mole Sofa
Rodrigues' signature piece designed in 1961, the "Mole" armchair (meaning "soft" in Portuguese) is comprised of a solid rounded wood frame, adjustable leather support straps and floppy, over-sized luxurious leather cushions. Robust and extremely comfortable, the "Mole" sparked an international design trend that favored comfort, and a new attention to scale, over the rigid and antiseptic concurrent design trends. In 1961 the "Mole" was prized at the IV Furniture Bienal in Italy. Originally designed in 1957. Re-designed in 2005. "Mole" sofa with solid frame. Straps in leather that support leather upholstered seat and back.
