ESPASSO INC.

On 38th Avenue at 34th Street in Queens, New York, Espasso, run by Sao Paulo native Carlos Junqueira, sells Brazilian modernist furniture from the 1930s to the present. Included are reissues of classics from renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer, as well as new pieces such as the Anel chair by Ricardo Fasanello, and Etel Carmona’s wooden tabletop objects, which are crafted from rare, government-approved wood. “Brazil had, and still has, an important modernist movement that many people are not aware of,” says Junqueira.
