IPANEMA WALL, 2014-2015
Rio de Janeiro
Chez Georges - Design Hotel
material: steel and concrete
Shortly after the arrival in Brazil, Miriam Loellmann is working on her second large-scale artwork inspired by the Ipanema pattern. This is her first commission for the private villa hotel Chez Georges in Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro.
She creates compositions of tiles she makes herself, looking for contrast and enabling a dialogue within the elements of the piece and with those who come in contact with them. This interplay of components leads to a very sensorial experience, rather than a statically designed surface.
"The Brazilian patterns fascinate me and represent my arrival and beginning in Rio de Janeiro.
"Over 6 month I make the tiles in my first studio in Santa Teresa, that I share with two Argentinian artists."
