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.
