Espasso Annex, the latest venture from Espasso founder Carlos Junqueira, is a gallery dedicated to showcasing vintage and limited edition Brazilian furniture. In addition, the Annex has forged a collaboration with Sao Paulo’s Luciana Brito Galeria – one of the leading art galleries in Brazil. As part of Luciana Brito’s New York Project, three curated exhibitions will be presented throughout the next twelve months.

Espasso Annex was created as a compliment to nearby Espasso, to meet the growing demand of its customers for vintage and rare furniture by its roster of acclaimed Brazilian designers. The new location will allow the original Espasso, and its locations in Los Angeles, Miami and London, to expand upon its exclusive collection of contemporary designers, including re-edition furniture and accessories.

Fine Tuning

Sintonia Fina-13

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.
