The allure of Maximalism

To the max!

A star who enjoys his iconic status in both his native Brazil and abroad, architect and designer Sig Bergamin’s bold Brazilian style comes across clearly in his vivid, eclectic work. After graduating from the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism of Santos, Sig signed residential and commercial projects throughout Brazil, Europe and the United States, with a style he himself states as a summation of eclecticism, ethnic diversity, humor and versatility. With a child’s curiosity and imagination, this resident of the world is always on the lookout for the different elements found in cultures, styles, colors and textures.

Even though he admits to having a fixation with the Orient, Sig loves to go as deep as possible into local cultures he visits, fishing for inspiration, and local antiques, furniture and objects. The result is a very real world filled with color and things, beautiful things that magically find their place next to each other, every time. A self-described “maximalist,” Bergamin is considered the go-to designer for people with multiple houses, jets, helicopters, and yachts. Blending eighteenth- and nineteenth-century French and Italian furnishings seamlessly with modern pieces from North and South America, his designs are exquisite mélanges of chic. At his home in São Paulo, Bergamin meticulously rotates which pillows, slipcovers, and lampshades are on display depending on the season. “Maximalism” is an ode to his vision; a highly addictive read for those who thirst for color, even if they didn’t know it before.
