ESPASSO is a specialist showroom in modern and contemporary Brazilian furniture, art and design objects, committed to conserving Brazil’s iconic 20th-century design heritage and promoting the work of today’s leading Brazilian designers. ESPASSO’s range includes exquisite works from the mid-century masters Sergio Rodrigues, Paulo Mendesde Rocha and Jorge Zalszupin, and future classics by contemporary designers Carlos Motta and Etel Carmona, all showcasing the comfort, sensuality and lasting appeal of Brazilian design. Sitting alongside this main collection is a selection of vintage pieces that further highlight the heritage and importance of Brazilian design and culture.
During London Design Festival 2015, ESPASSO introduced an exclusive, limited edition furniture collection by Brazilian designer Zanini de Zanine. Trained under Sergio Rodrigues, and the son of mid-century furniture designer and architect José Zanine Caldas, Zanine was named ‘Designer of the Year’ by Maison&Objet at its first US satellite show, Maison&Objet Americas in 2015.
