Carlos Junqueira, founder of ESPASSO, says of the launch in the UK, “We are very excited to open a London showroom, which will allow us the opportunity to show our collection to a broader audience, as well as more convenient access to the works of our designers for our existing clientele based abroad. Collaborating with 19 Greek Street was a natural fit for us, and we are looking forward to bringing the best of Brazilian design, past and present, to London”
ESPASSO currently only has showrooms in the US (NY and LA), so this opening in the UK demonstrates the growing importance of the Brazilian design on an international level.
