Sergio Rodrigues x ESPASSO

Amidst Fashion Week chaos Brazilian beats echo and caipirinhas abound to celebrate an inspired collection of new works by Sergio Rodrigues for ESPASSO. Known as the "father of Brazilian furniture" for identifying a signature aesthetic of jacarand√°, peroba and imbuia wood furniture characteristic of the international scene in the 1950's Rodrigues is featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Accented by exclusive lamps the acclaimed "Chifruda" (aka Aspas) armchair goes on sale in numbered editions exclusively in ESPASSO's New York and Los Angeles locations this fall.
