In celebration of Miami Art Week, Miami-based Brazilian brand, Artefacto, brought their famed TAPPO ARTS campaign to the U.S. this December, featuring the creative talent of 50 Miami icons and artists.

The celebrated contemporary furnishings and home staging brand presented an online auction with collectible pieces by design stars Deborah Wecselman and Kobi Karp, as well as other local celebrities including Miami Heat’s DJ Irie and Brazilian Racecar driver Helio Castroneves. For the project, each designer and artist created their own rendition of the brand’s signature Tappo stool.

All proceeds from the project supported Miami Cancer Institute’s “Arts in Medicine,” an innovative program at Baptist Health that is transforming the cancer experience for patients and caregivers through the arts.
