In its third year, CASACOR, the most complete architecture, interior, and landscaping design exhibition in North America, returned to the Magic City launching during Miami Art Week at Brickell City Centre. The 19-day exhibition brings interior and architectural designs that speak to minimalism, maximalism, experiential, conceptual, organic, as well as innovative design spaces.
This year’s exhibition features an international mix of 20 established and emerging designers, all inspired by sustainability and Miami’s urban infrastructure. Landscape artists have also curated living spaces to allow guests to truly connect with nature while creating a sense of belonging and calmness in the epicenter of Miami’s famed financial district.
“For CASACOR Miami 2019, we are aiming to create a hub that brings architecture, landscaping, art, and interior design to the forefront of Miami Art Week and beyond,” said Lucio Grimaldi, CEO of CASACOR Miami. “Over the past two years, CASACOR Miami has broken the mold of the traditional interior design exhibition and bridged the gap between Miami Beach and inland Miami during Miami Art Week.”
The eclectic exhibition allows guests the opportunity to meet participating design professionals and brands while engaging with innovative design ideas which they can apply to their own living space. Designing South Florida had the opportunity to tour the eclectic multi-level space with Lina Hargrett, curator for CASACOR Miami, and meet several of the talented designers.
Designs showcased at the indoor-outdoor exhibition include the works of Moniomi Design, Allan Malouf, Pininfarina, Jesus Pacheco Studio, Edge Collections, Alberto Salaberri, and Léo Shehtman, who all returned to the event for the second time displaying new designs. Keeping things fresh, CASACOR Miami has added new top-tier designers to its roster. Among these are Ukraine’s rising design firm YODEZEEN, AD100’s 2017 best interior designers Sig Bergamin, and Michelle Haim from award-winning design firm Fanny Haim & Associates, and Cristiana Mascarenhas.
Local talent such as Mr. Alex Tate Design, Guimar Urbina Interiors, B+G Design, Tamara Feldman Design, IG Workshop, Light on White Design Studio, and Studio RODA in collaboration with Odabashian are also showcasing their work at the carefully curated event. Interior designer, Tamara Feldman used local and international influence to create the concept for The Amalgam, a 500 square foot living room she designed with architectural details and a blend of interwoven bespoke elements that are sure to evoke the senses.
“The Amalgam is a space where I blend different styles,” said Feldman. The Art Deco marble tile floor, mid-century details on the woodwork and modern accents drew inspiration from both my Mexican roots and the time spent studying design and architecture in Japan.”
The exhibition has held several panel discussions since its launch on December 2nd covering topics such as Design and Globalization, The Future of Brazilian Design, and Art, Collecting & Sustainability. But CASACOR isn’t over just yet. The design-centric exhibit is open to the public until December 21st with student tickets starting at $20, and regular admission costing $30.
