May 12, 2016 – Miami, FL – MAISON&OBJET Americas will be holding an exclusive event benefiting UNICEF on May 12 from 7p.m. to 11p.m. at Wynwood Lab, Miami’s new private lifestyle lounge. Javier Gomez, People magazine’s “Sexiest Artist Alive,” will host the V.I.P. Experience event. Located in the heart of Wynwood, the exclusive private club is just steps from the famous Wynwood Walls. The location will give MAISON&OBJET Americas attendees the opportunity to experience the creative chaos that Wynwood is known for and then escape to the area’s most exclusive private club.
While Wynwood Lab is a private venue, the general public can purchase tickets for this event, with proceeds benefiting UNICEF. Attendees will enjoy an evening filled with exquisite food and drinks, and original and limited edition works of art while rubbing elbows with some of the world’s leading artists, talents, and editors.
Panamanian artist and a MAISON&OBJET Rising Talent, Gomez was chosen as the V.I.P. Experience party host and featured artist. He will be showcasing his photography collaborations with luxury brands BVLGARI, Fendi Casa, and JG home linens bedding collection. Also on display will be his acrylic fine furniture collaborations with Miami local interior designer and furniture artisan B. Pila and her daughter Gabrielle Noelle also known as “Flower Child”.
“During the inaugural benefit, a percentage of my art proceeds presented and products sold in Wynwood Lab will benefit one of my favorite charities, UNICEF,” said Gomez. “I am excited to have the opportunity to transform Wynwood Lab along with founders Boyd and Christi Tasker and Gabriela Noelle to create an architecturally entertaining playground including a one-of-a-kind acrylic ping-pong table that will have one of my favorite BLVGARI peacock images. The table and many of the items will be manufactured by Miami local manufacturer B.Pila.”
“Wynwood Lab has been chosen to host several high profile luxury events and celebrity personalities. We are honored to host the M&O Americas prestigious V.I.P. event,” said Boyd Tasker. “Together with ELLE DÉCOR, our national media sponsor, we look forward to showcasing the finest luxury home fashions blended together in a lifestyle setting for all to experience.”
