Maison et Objet Miami 2016: Get to know the rising talents
Maison et Objet Miami is almost here, so we couldn’t let this pass way. M&O Mag made a selection of some of the best interior designers that we will share.
M&O Mag selected interior designers from Panama, Mexico, Brazil, USA and Chile. The six chosen designers will be showcasing their work at Maison et Objet Americas in Miami Beach from May 10th to 13th 2016.
Ad Hoc – Mexico
This dual, composed by the industrial designer Juan Hosé Nemer and the architect Mauricio Álvarez, first met at the Iberoamericana University in Mexico City. Their objectives were to create furniture and spaces which seeks perfected details through design. Their work merges decorative elements from the Mexican crafts, natural materials and manual techniques in a functional and contemporary aesthetic. With rich and unique works, they have been showcasing at Wanted DesignNYC 2015, Fuori Salone 2015 in Milan and at Design Week Mexico.
Samuel Amoia – New York
Samuel Amoia has a long history in the hospitality industry! Early he learned its inner workings, at the Miami Delano, then at Ian Schrager and Andre Balazs’ New York spots. Since he joined the decorator Stephen Sills, he has developed an approach, rather than a signature: his taste for textures, subtle tones and sculpture pieces adapts to each project and to each place. He founded AMOIA Studio, where he designs exclusive pieces and limited editions for Delorenzo Gallery and Dover Street Market (New York), Jean de Merry in the U.S., Soho House Berlin, and The Store by Alex Eagle in London.
Great things to People (gt2P) – Chile
gt2P is an architecture, art and design studio based in Santiago, Chile, composed by five designers: Tamara Pérez, Sebastián Rozas, Guillermo Parada, Victor Imperiale and Eduardo Arancibia. Their goal is to cross digital production with traditional heritage and lo-tech. Their work combined craftsmanship and material of chilians artisans with 2.0 technologies. Gt2P has participated in prestigious exhibitions like MAD NY, Design Miami 2015, Cappellini Milan 2014, PAD London, Galerie Gosserez Paris 2014 and Rossana Orlandi Milan 2013.
Javier Gomez is a Panama native, he studied photography and Advancement of Science and Art in the US. He found his own aesthetic on nature, cityscapes and the architectural details of megacities. Between abstraction and surrealism, his designs streamline the saturation of colors and patterns to make universal, cohesive wholes. We can found his works in the collections of personalities such as Hilary Swank, Bill Clinton, Pele, Colin Cowie and Dr. Phil. Some of his creations have been transformed into a bed linen collection (JG home, fall 2015). In 2016, there will be a carpet collection and the artist’s furniture line.
Guilherme Wentz – Brazil
Guilherme Wentz cultivates a modern style that evokes a certain art of everyday life using clean lines and refined uses. His career starts at Riva and then he opened his own design studio. Since then, his works has been recognized by many awards like IDEA Brasil, Brazil Design Award and iF Design Award. He touched his first collection for offices at Decameron, where he is the design art director
Ben Medansky – Los Angeles
Born in Arizona, Ben Medansky engages in ceramics like a religion, he believes as much in the power of earth as a material as in the fittingness of its forms. He studied in Chicago, where he developed a passion for brutalist architecture and industrial design. He deepened his work in Los Angeles, in the studios of Peter Shire, Anthony Pierson, Shio Kusaka and the Haas Brothers. In 2012, he founded Ben Medansky Ceramics, where he create their minimalist and the handmade works around lines as abstract as they are essential, in a deliberately limited color palette. When not creating lines in collaboration with the prominent Herman Miller, Bergdorf Goodman, or Kelly Wearstler, Ben Medansky gives shape to sculptural objects and other “Instruments of Peace” that enrich collections all over the world.
