CABOCO FOR RODRIGO OLIVIERA AND VICTOR VASCONCELLES
Caboco captures the popular warmth and energy of Brazil within a modernist language, equally native to and beloved by California. It is a tale of two forms, and the language that is created by presence and absence, belly and void.
It is the gentleness of the language, punctuated with the patterned enervation of colored modernist tiles, a staccato upbeat of color and vibration. Fare is shared over high design, low-tech wood particle tables creating an arena of food experienced through connection. The design is crafted in the spirit of our chefs, a commonly created table, brought to the art of conversation. Caboco relays a story unique to Brazil and as of yet untold in the US. It is the creative rise of a generation.
Caboco originates an inter-joy. In the spirit of our chefs intention and in every move, the design of Caboco shows the inseparable interlay of two languages, explained as separate, which together create one; common and artful, Brazilian and American, here and there, you and me.
