rio is (more) design!

the party has begun! rio de janeiro, from now and at least for the next week, is officially the brazilian capital of design. the first events of rio+design happened today, focused initially in the "charm tetragon" of ipanema (a region of a few blocks where are located many design, jewelry, fashion shops, good restaurants and many other trendy commerce). view photos here.

in the first day of design inaugurations, cocktails and open houses received the prestigious visits of rio de janeiro state secretary of development, julio bueno, and the subsecretary of commerce, dulce ângela procópio, both of which have done a lot as political articulators recognizing the importance of design. along this week will be posted more information and pictures about the brazil design week (that officially begins tomorrow morning) as well as rio+design.
