Reddymade designed a colorfully stylish space for Casacor / Miami, in the spectacular penthouse at Rise in Brickell City Centre by Swire Properties with sweeping views of downtown Miami. The concept skillfully places works by luminaries such as Oscar Niemeier, the Campana Brothers, Studio Nucleo, Richard Prince, Andy Warhol, Hechizoo and Helene Binet, alongside works by rising stars in the design world in a colorfully animated 1,800 square foot space with stunning city and expansive city views. The design uses color strategically both to create a soothing backdrop, and an animating focus in the spectacular space.
You are welcomed by a bright Andy Warhol rug and directed into the space around a custom kinetic installation by emerging Dutch designers Alissa + Nienke .
The dining area features a Richard Prince rug (courtesy of Blue Train) with a free-form design informed by a series of numerical collages, a Primitive dining table from Studio Nucleo paired with their Blue Lapis and Primitive stools, (courtesy of Ammann Gallery). Custom painted acrylic benches by Nicole Ackerman complete the tableau. The space is set against a backdrop of Aura wallpaper by Calico, illuminated by lighting designed by the illustrious Johanna Grawunder.
Delineating the dining and living areas is a brilliantly hued wall inspired by Pritzker Prize winning Mexican architect Luis Barragan, with a lacy black Huixcolotla console by Mexican design studio Ad Hoc, paired with the photographs by Helene Binet of Zaha Hadid’s Maxxi museum (courtesy of Ammann Gallery), and candlesticks by Kelly Lamb (courtesy of R and Company). A seating area with vintage velvet chairs by Carlo Hauner with a table by Martin Eisler for the iconic Brazilian furniture company Forma creates a breakout space.
The living area holds its own against the backdrop of expansive views with stellar works by icons of Brazilian design.
