Peter Marino is the principal of Peter Marino Architect PLLC, an internationally acclaimed architecture, planning and design firm founded in 1978 and based in New York city, however with several offices around US, like Philadelphia, Miami and so on. Marino’s Design contributions in the worldwide, emphasizing materialiy, texture, scale light and the constant dialogue between interior and exterior. Let’s see some of his Excentric Interiors.
If Marino’s personal style is specific and indelible, his architecture and interiors are much harder to pin down. Marino’s boutiques do not instantly assault with their “Marino-ness”. Like NY Mag wrote, inside a Marino space, it’s all smooth-moving luxury, where drawers and doors close in perfect silence, and the elevator button is weirdly satisfying to push. They are well and flatteringly lit and, like Marino’s office, full of eclectic collections of art. They feel rich and full and calm.
You need to visit the most recent Peter Marino’s exhibition. I imagine you are preparing yourself already for the big trade show that is coming: Maison et Objet Americas 2015. But besides M&O Miami, there’s so much more you can do in the city. And visit Peter Marino‘s exhibition is one of those things.
Marino’s doesn’t need any kind of presentation. He’s the great architect that has been befitting luxury retailers as Dior, Chanel or even Louis Vuitton. Some cultural education never hurt nobody, so you really should visit Marino’s show at the Bass Museum of Art. “One Way: Peter Marino” is the name of the show that will be in Miami Beach through May 3. And there’s just a few days left.
And how did this exhibition came out? Reading the interview that the artist gave to Architectural Digest, you can figure it out. It happened when George Lindemann and several other board members went to Marino’s office in Manhattan and said, “Wouldn’t it be cool to have an exhibition that felt like your work space?” See more here. Visiting this exhibition, you will be able to find architect’s multifaceted relationship with art. The main point of this collection is exactly: “Peter Marino collects art, Peter Marino commissions art, and Peter Marino builds art.”
In an interview for Architectural Digest, Marino said: “It’s important to say that the Bass exhibition is not a retrospective. We’re showing architecture from just the past seven or eight years, and the largest part of my art collection, my Renaissance bronzes, won’t be a focus. I’ve already displayed those at L.A.’s Huntington Library, the Wallace Collection in London, and the Minneapolis Institute of Art. The Miami audience is, shall we say, quite pop. Most of the show is what I would call young and fun and hip.”
