ESPASSO, premier specialists in modern Brazilian furniture, art and design objects, will host the UK launch of a new, exclusive limited edition furniture collection by Brazilian designer Zanini de Zanine during London Design Festival 2015.

Zanine was named ‘Designer of the Year’ by Maison&Objet at its first US satellite show, Maison&Objet Americas in 2015. Such recognition by the organisers is a major distinction, with similar honours awarded to international designers including Zaha Hadid, Jean Nouvel and Philippe Starck.

Available exclusively in the UK through ESPASSO, the new collection by Zanine beautifully demonstrates the designer’s artful approach to carpentry and craftsmanship while showcasing the very best in contemporary Brazilian design.

Operating two studios in Rio, Zanine has created furniture, lighting and tabletop accessories for an array of leading design companies from around the world. Zanine is the son of José Zanine Caldas, a renowned mid-century furniture designer and architect. Often inspired by his father’s works, Zanine first trained with Sergio Rodrigues who went on to become a personal friend and mentor over the years. Zanine’s furniture has gone on to exhibit at major design shows in Milan, London, Brussels, Los Angeles and Brazil, while being sold at major auction houses.

ESPASSO

ESPASSO is the premier design gallery in the US and UK for modern and contemporary Brazilian furniture, art and design objects.

Opened in New York in 2002, Los Angeles in 2004, and London, United Kingdom in 2012 and a satellite location in Miami in 2014 by Sao Paulo native Carlos Junqueira, ESPASSO is committed to conserving Brazil's rich 20th Century design heritage, presenting works by mid-century masters and discovering today's emerging designers. The gallery regularly presents a highly curated selection of pieces that are often unavailable outside of Brazil or made exclusively for ESPASSO.

Through its unique relationships with some of the best Brazilian architects and designers the gallery has curated a special exhibition of Oscar Niemeyer works, organized a shop-in-shop for Sergio Rodrigues, presented the first solo US exhibitions by Isay Weinfeld, Carlos Motta, Zanini de Zanine and Claudia Moreira Salles and showcased works by Arthur Casas, Etel Carmona and mid-century masters Joaquim Tenreiro, Jose Zanine Caldas, Jorge Zalszupin, Branco & Preto and Gregory Warchavachic.
