Tastemakers Showcase 2013

Ornare honors six from Miami's design community

More than 500 design experts, art enthusiasts and VIPs flocked to the Ornare showroom – located in the heart of the Miami Design District – to celebrate six of the Magic City’s most influential interior designers and architects at the 2013 Ornare Tastemakers Showcase.

“The Art Garden”

Basel Miami Art Week featured a special public art exhibition in the Miami Design District. What was a vacant lot waiting to be developed became the temporary home for a very peculiar family: The Big Foot Family series by Israeli-French artist Idan Zareski. The public installation was kicked off with a private event co-hosted by Idan Zareski and Markowicz Fine Art gallery owner Bernard Markowicz.

Tents, large screens, projectors and strategically positioned bright lights were part of the components that transformed the site into The Art Garden, which was conceptualized and designed by interior designer David Landau.
