The 21st century is characterized by fluidity, the globalized world, of information and thereby, increasingly want to look inside, know our essence, our roots and stories so that we can in fact, who we are. This is reflected in our House too, with familiar objects and of affective values, but also the recovery of objects, handicrafts, furniture, colors to translate all our Brazilian and regionality. And increasingly we are awakening and valuing our Brazilian design, rather than simply bring to Brazil, the European and American design;

Currently, the designer Sergio J Matos is recognized both nationally and internationally, by translating in their creations the Brazil, be in Balloon Chair, inspired by the jerk of the Northeast or the balance Bodocongó made with wooden spoons, a cultural achievement of our country.
