This Miami residence designed by Luis Pons Design Lab represents a celebration of memorable moments in life through a stunning mid-century furniture and Latin-American art collection. The residence was a personal project showcasing the designer’s personal art and furniture collection.
A small renovation that unveil the beauty of the traditional cathedral ceilings. Leaving the expose wood ceiling as a main event, the rest of the living spaces lay down under the roof. The house holds a collection of mid-century furniture and Latin-American art that recreate the moments that have celebrated life.
The design of the house came as a result of spacial and logical considerations. Opening the cathedral ceiling, and exposing the wood structure ensured a light and airy space, while in the same time adding character and warmth to the house. A simple solution that created major impact.
The living room is separated from the dining area by a colourful and interactive chandelier. The chandelier was one of the first lamps designed by Luis Pons, that would later be part of a collection of lamps by Luis Pons Design Lab. The light bulbs can be placed anywhere within the volume of chains through small magnets, creating a charming art installation.
The large art and furniture collection has a special meaning, as each piece has a story behind it, transforming it into a “personal collection of memories”. Each piece was displayed in a way that did not make the house feel like a museum, but a rather warm and lived-in space. The designer describes the collection as personal objects that have a life of their own. The setting allows each art piece be used on a daily basis, ensuring that each piece comes to live and adds to the “personal collection of memories”.
This small house manages to encompass so much through simplicity, yet attention to details. The large art collection does not overpower the house, but instead adds to its charm and personality, creating a space that is enchanting and memorable.
