Anima Domus, South Floridaâ€™s destination for contemporary Italian home furnishings, will celebrate its 15th anniversary with an invitation-only showcase event during Art Basel Miami Beach on Thursday, December 5th, in the Miami Design District. Being held at the brandâ€™s new 4,800 square-foot showroom, the event will bring together six modernist furniture brands with pieces being imported directly from Italy and Sweden. To complement the designs, artist Bret Lopez will create a temporary installation of his large-scale photography. Of the artworks on display, one will be raffled during the event with proceeds of the ticket sales being donated directly to Childrenâ€™s Bereavement Center.
â€œThis anniversary event will serve as a platform to exhibit the most paramount pieces in Anima Domusâ€™ collection,â€ says Marconi Naziazeni, owner of Anima Domus. â€œWe are honored to partner with strong brands who are all defining examples of unparalleled design, unwavering quality and a commitment to the clientele base that we serve both in South Florida and abroad. Weâ€™re excited to host an interactive event where guests can appreciate these pieces and view them in an intimate setting. Weâ€™re also proud to be continuing our partnership with Childrenâ€™s Bereavement Center. The charity is a passion of ours, and we truly believe that they have a profound, positive impact on every individual they help.â€
The charitable event will feature six brands that are exclusive to Anima Domus: Cierre Imbottiti, fine leather upholstery; CLEI, modular and transformable space saving solutions; Fiam Italia, a line of furniture produced in curved glass; Porada, functional and forward pieces handcrafted from wood; Presotto Italia, unique wall units and furnishings inspired by nature; and Henzel Studio, a brand of luxury handmade rugs debuting its Diamond/Nordic Raw artistic rug collection for the first time in the United States.
