Sustainable design expo brings sexy back to Rio in 2016

Now, Magalhães informs us that her exhibition has been given a cultural seal of approval from the government of Brazil, and that it will return to Rio for its sixth edition right around the time of the Summer Olympics. No word yet on which items will make the cut—Magalhães has promised to keep us posted—but we're betting that at least some of these, which we featured in our slide show last year, will make a repeat appearance.
