FURNITURE PROPOSAL FOR A HIP STORE

Last month, I sent a bid to an architect on the interiors for an International brand that is opening it's first store in the US.

The brand is cool, young, hip. The vibe is punk, graffiti, a mix between an artist and designer that lives between NY, Paris and Berlin. The client wanted a mix of antiques, of modern, old and classic. Exposed walls, open space where the product would pop in its displays. The store is to be a communal space for artists and designers, including possibly a cafe and studio.




POP-UP CONCEPT DESIGN

Bottle Top is an amazing organization creating beautiful products that focus on craftsmanship and empowerment of communities and artisans. Their product line  includes collaboration with designers like Narciso Rodriguez to name a few.

My work with the founders was to help out on the concept design: stimulating our creativity in brainstorming sessions with image/mood boards that would inspire the next steps to the creation of their stores.



BACHELOR PAD

Late last year, a friend approached me with a super challenge: He purchased a studio in Manhattan and had less than a month to make the space livable. He had only his clothing and some old pictures that were dear to him.

POLO STORE AT IGUATEMI

So excited to work with the team on developing this POLO store in my old neighborhood of Jardins!
I grew up just blocks from Iguatemi and never thought I would be helping design and source the creation of a POLO RALPH LAUREN store.
Really fun to get to know all the teams in Brazil and bring a little of my Portuguese to use.

As one of my first projects at Ralph Lauren as a Decorative Project Manager was to open this beautiful and the first in Latin-America store in Sao Paulo - Cidade Jardim. 

The store, with both Men's and Women's, including a Bar has a hacienda feeling reminiscent of the store in Beverly Hills.
Definitely worth a visit!
