The passion for Brazilian design is the driving force behind Emporium Brazil Design. Original Production Furniture from the 40s to the 70s by Brazilian artists such as Oscar Niemeyer, Sergio Rodrigues, Joaquim Tenreiro, Jorge Zalszupin, among other great names, are part of our collection. The production of renowned and prominent contemporary designers on the national and international scene also has a guaranteed space in our curatorship.

Compared to works of art, the pieces are carefully selected through art auctions, antique shops and private collections. The preservation of the original characteristics is extremely important, however, when necessary, the pieces are restored, rescuing their original beauty.

The furniture produced by big names in Brazilian design and architecture surely represents the best of timeless design that over the years has gained more and more worldwide recognition.

Since 2012 in the market, Emporium Brazil Design has grown and internationalized by opening its doors in the USA, allowing us to contribute even more to the dissemination of Brazilian design in the world.

The founders

Professional dancer graduated from Escola Estadual de Dança Maria Olenewa of Theatro Municipal do Rio de Janeiro, journalist (PUC-RJ) and Interior Designer (SENAC RJ), Alessandra Dubois has always been surrounded by art and design throughout her life.

It was mainly through her career as an interior designer and as a co-founder of Emporium Brazil Design that her knowledge of Brazilian furniture was expanded and consolidated.

With a different background, Roberto Alves was in charge of several of his family’s businesses until he became a lawyer. For years he was a partner in a law firm until he decided to a change of scenery once again and created the Emporium Brazil Design alongside his partner, Alessandra Dubois. His background as a businessman and lawyer were essential in this endeavor, but over the years and with more than one hundred auctions of art and antiques, he acquired a solid knowledge on the subject.
