An Artful Alliance: Nina Magon transforms Cosentino Miami City Center into an immersive installation in celebration of Miami Art Week
“Dreamcloud,” created in collaboration with the global surfacing brand and Studio M Lighting,captures the designer’s avant garde interpretation of the reflection and clarity found only in dreams
As a celebration of its intersectionality in the worlds of art and design, Cosentino, the Spanish global leader in the production and distribution of innovative and sustainable surfaces, is honored to announce the newest chapter of its collaboration with acclaimed interior design Nina Magon. For one day only during Miami Art Week, the Cosentino Miami City Center will metamorphose to host “Dreamcloud” – an otherworldly immersive art installation designed by Magon that blurs the lines between states of consciousness.
To bring her vision for “Dreamcloud” to life, Nina channeled materiality and light – using a total of eight slabs of her newly-launched Dekton Onirika Collection and a concept collection she currently has in the works with design pioneer Studio M Lighting, slated to launch in Spring 2023. “Onirika is a metaphor for a voyage, and ‘Dreamcloud’ takes it to the next level,” Magon says. “It’s an escape from daily chaos – a portal that instantly gives a new perspective to ourselves and the world around us.” Magon used each colorway from the Onirika Collection with great intentionality – as a nod to the various levels of dreams experienced. Upon entering the wandering configuration of archways, guests are immersed in reflective surfacing – guided only by a meandering configuration of exaggerated lengths of LED-illuminated cords hanging overhead with airy, acrylic iridescent bubble clusters.
“It’s been six years since we first met Nina, and we’re constantly inspired to see how her own visions capture the unlimited, unexpected applications of Dekton,” says Eduardo Cosentino, CEO of Cosentino North America and EVP of Global Sales. “In every facet of her work she pushes the envelope, and it motivates us to continue to do the same. We’re thrilled Nina united us with Studio M Lighting to host this experience as part of Miami Art Week.”
Nathan Sperling, Chief Product Officer for Maxim Lighting Group, agrees the collaboration couldn’t be a more natural fit: “Like Cosentino, we’re a family-owned company, and we’re both deeply rooted in using modern innovation to elevate design. Cosentino shares our enthusiasm and dares to reimagine the way we present our capabilities. This ethos, which also resonates greatly with Nina, was foundational to the collaboration, and we’re eager to explore other partnership opportunities with such an esteemed brand.”
Following an exclusive VIP event on December 1, the Cosentino Miami City Center, located at 3898 Biscayne Blvd, will open its doors to the public on December 2 from 9a - 5p so that visitors can experience “Dreamcloud.”
