On Wednesday, September 6th, Carlos Junqueira and Luciana Brito celebrated the opening of “Ruptura” – an in-depth exhibition of work by the São Paulo-based Grupo Ruptura.

Grupo Ruptura founded the Brazilian concrete art movement, which espoused the creation of universally apprehensible compositions through the use of color and geometry in sync with a modernizing society.

Espasso Annex / Luciana Brito NY Project, is an original collaboration between Carlos Junqueira and Luciana Brito aiming to explore the convergence of design and art through a Brazilian perspective.

The exhibition will be on view from September 6 – November 6, 2017 at ESPASSO Annex/ Luciana Brito NY Project at 186 Franklin Street in TriBeCa.

On September 07, the Campana Brothers celebrated the opening of their latest exhibition, HYBRIDISM.

Friedman Benda gallery is presenting Fernando and Humberto Campana in an immersive exhibition devoted to the theme of hybridism. The works are assemblages of materials and visual themes drawn from the Brothers’ immediate surroundings and will include deeply personal reflections and gestures juxtaposed with classical motifs.

Hybridism, informed by details, moods, and emotions, marks a point of departure for Estudio Campana as its most sculptural body of work to date. Humberto Campana explains, “With this exhibition we are playing much more with sculpture than with functionality. We manifest a dialogue between designer, artist, and sculptor. Fernando and I try to jump into the assemblage process unconsciously, allowing us a freedom and immediacy that goes beyond our practice to date.”

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.

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.

The private facilities, also designed by the Swiss architects, span 17,000 square feet (1,5880 square meters) across the ninth and 10th floors of the 60-storey building at 56 Leonard Street.

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.
