The Iguatemi Glass House is a base to entertain retail firm Iguatemi’s VIP clients and international guests 

Opened in 2014, the Iguatemi Glass House in Sao Paulo, Brazil, is a Mies van der Rohe-inspired structure featuring a combination of Brazilian modernist furniture and international design pieces. Carlos Jereissati, CEO of Iguatemi, one of the largest, full service companies in Brazil’s shopping centre sector, will use the home to entertain Iguatemi’s VIP clients and international guests. It will also play host to fashion shows, talks and workshops, establishing a synergy between the brands Iguatemi carries and their clients.

The design of the house was conceived by the architectural firm Morettin Andrade Architects, comprised by Principal Architects Vinicius Andrade and Marcelo Morettin. The architects have received awards in various competitions in Brazil and abroad.

The architect Samuel Lamas is responsible for selecting the furniture for the project. He holds a degree in Architecture and Urbanism at the Università Degli Studi Roma 3, Rome, Italy. He also worked with Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas and exercises his profession in Engineering and Architecture.

The home is not a gallery per se but the interior is very special and well curated. It features interiors with vintage furniture by midcentury Brazilian designers Joaquim Tenreiro, Sergio Rodrigues and Jorge Zalzsupin, pieces by international designers Charles Ray Eames, Naoto Fukasawa, Verner Panton, Paul Hennigsen, Harry Bertoia, Antonio Citerio and Massimo Vignelli and contemporary art by Sarah Morris, Olafur Eliasson, Lisa Oppenhiem and Alexandre da Cunha.
