on the edge of design in miami
Jenna Caradonna and I were selected to attend Interior Design Magazine’s bi-annual event, re:Source, a face-to-face targeted buyer event held at The Miami Beach EDITION hotel designed by Yabu Pushelberg. This event included one-on-one meetings with vendors of various product types ranging from surfaces to architectural products to furniture. We even got a sneak peek of some cool, unreleased products. The following are some vendors we met with:
B+N Industries is an innovative designer and manufacturer of architectural products and environments for the Hospitality, Contract, and Retail Industries. Their iconic panels add a multi-dimensional aesthetic to walls. Their latest product launch is called Fortina – a remarkable architectural system that will fool your senses: replicating wood slats and louvers with aluminum and a hyper-realistic non-pvc surface.
BuzziSpace’s innovative furnishings meet the challenges of the collaborative workspace with products that inspire interaction through simple, sustainable, and acoustically-driven design. Buzziblinds are acoustical blinds that rotate and can be used as an alternative to boring stationary walls.
Moroso products celebrate the balance between technological innovation and old world craftsmanship. Patricia Urquiola is the designer who best expresses Moroso’s vision; she has created the main range of the new Bohemian collection. Her innovative approach to classic capitonné work is accomplished by giving it a revolutionary modern look.
New Moon produces hand crafted rugs that are woven in Nepal, free from child labor. Made from 100% Tibetan wool and Chinese Silk, their Tibetan rugs range from traditional antique reproductions, Orientals and transitional designs, to contemporary and modern pieces. Offering the highest standards of responsible design and workmanship, New Moon strives to carry forward the thread of one of mankind’s oldest art forms without being merely imitative and without compromising quality or social responsibility.
Stone Source is a design-driven company that provides cutting edge, high-quality surfaces including natural stone, porcelain tile, glass tile, engineered stone, and reclaimed wood. This stunning slab, Calacatta Tucci, is the reception area of their New York Showroom.
Tuuci was started with a singular vision: to create the most durable, stylish and functionally supreme shade systems in the world. They offer a wide selection of products from parasols to pavilion lounges in contemporary and vintage styles. The company’s unparalleled sense of style and design not seen anywhere else in the world is head-turning.
Jenna and I saw countless fascinating products and ideas in Miami, and we can’t wait to incorporate them into our projects. We are do grateful to Interior Design Magazine for the opportunity to attend such an effective and FUN event.
