ESPASSO New York celebrated, on May 22, the opening of “Mole Armchair: 60 Years”, a new exhibition celebrating the 60th anniversary of Sergio Rodrigues’ iconic “Mole” armchair, designed in 1957.
In celebration of its 60th anniversary, sixty limited-edition, made to order, Mole armchair and ottoman are now available to purchase worldwide, and sold exclusively by ESPASSO in the US and the UK.
The ESPASSO exhibition will allow clients, collectors and visitors to dive into the world of Mole and Sergio’s easy spirit and playfulness. While, the main focus of the gallery will be the 60th anniversary of the Mole chair, the exhibition will also display other furniture pieces that represent Sergio’s work and international design relevance.
The exhibition will be open until June 16, at 38 N Moore Street in TriBeCa.
Architectural Digest Editors picked Espasso’s exhibition “Mole Armchair: 60 Years” as one of the top design happenings from New York’s Design Fairs.
Dezeen Magazine offered a peek at the amenity spaces available to residents moving into Herzog & de Meuron’s newest skyscraper in Tribeca, New York. The reading room features Sergio Rodrigues’ “Diz” armchair.
Work on the skyscraper completed earlier this year. Its stacked form, which houses 145 residences, has resulted in comparisons to wooden block game Jenga.
The tower is topped with 10 penthouses, while one corner of the ground level appears to be supported by a bulbous mirrored sculpture by artist Anish Kapoor.

ESPASSO New York celebrated Claudia Moreira Salles’s new exhibit “Fine Tuning”. The show premiered a new line of limited-edition lamps and never-before-seen furniture designed by Claudia. The event also showcased a new book featuring the “Fine Tuning” lamp series.
The LP Table lamps exemplify a balance of complexity and simplicity in the lightness of their structure against their own bold shadows. It is a highlighted piece in the Fine Tuning collection, now showing at ESPASSO NY.
