Em Trânsito | Brazilian Mid-century Reissues by ESPASSO

We already covered Gallery ESPASSO re-edition of Oscar Niemeyer and Jorge Zalszupin furniture. They’re now reissuing more special limited editions pieces by celebrated 20th century Brazilian architects and designers and presenting them in an exhibition called ‘em trânsito‘.

Em Trânsito showcases lightings, furniture and design objects by midcentury Brazilian masters like Oscar Neimeyer, Sergio Rodrigues and Jorge Zalszupin but also less exposed ones like Etel Carmona, Fernando Mendes, Carlos Motta, Claudia Moreira Salles and Zanini de Zanine.

Em Trânsito showcases the rich, innovative and whimsical design sensibility of Brazil, which traditionally transcends and conflates old and new, hard and soft, European, Indigenous and African influences; while in the process paving the way and establishing a fresh aesthetic and culture, where the flux of new ideas is favored over fixed ‘isms’.

The exhibition is held at the the Shore Club in Miami, one of South Beach’s most iconic hotels. The venue was designed by Isay Weinfeld, one of Brazil most prominent architects. He transformed the 3-acre beachfront property to include a hotel and luxury condominium for HFZ Capital Group.

Among the most notable pieces, Oscar Niemeyer’s On Desk, which goes back to the 1990s and is now being produced for the first time, along with Claudia Moreira Salles’  Concreto Bench, made of American walnut and concrete. There’s also Sérgio Rodrigues’ Benjamin Chair, his last work before his death earlier this year. Freijó wood armchair is another example of Rodrigues’ other work featured in the exhibition.
