Be Modern in "Ampersand House Gallery"

Immagine
The beautiful “maison de maitre” of Kathryn and Ike was the place to be last Friday!
Architects, collectors, designers and art lovers, more than 200 people attended the opening of the Brazilian Modern exhibition, in a setting filled with modernist furniture from the Be Modern Brazilian collection, contemporary Brazilian art and photography, jewellery. Exceptional dining table and chairs by Joaquim Tenreiro, armchairs by Sergio Rodrigues and Jorge Zalszupin, and cotemporary silverware by Nilton Cunha together with photographs by Felipe Morozini, were part of this unique atmosphere this exhibition was able to create. A real must if visiting Brussels!
