Carlos Bustinza and Alberto Snaidero hosted a fabulous evening soiree: “Just Orange,” to celebrate the launch of the Snaidero Living collection at the newly designed Studio Snaidero Hollywood, FL showroom, which also features many new Snaidero kitchen designs, including Pininfarina’s Ola20.
Over 250 designers, architects, developers, socialites and artists from Palm Beach to Coral Gables were greeted with a “Snaidero orange” carpet, where they stopped for photos; and peered onto a selection of the latest Ferrari and Aston Martin motorcars from south Florida luxury marquee, Excell Auto Group. Once inside guests admired a showroom filled with a thousand Florida fresh oranges, dozens and dozens of white orchids, and larger-than-life photographs from fashion and art legend Iran Issa-Khan. Three of Mr. Bostinza’s prized Bonsais were showcased, including a priceless “Bucida Spinosa” from his mentor and teacher, Bonsai Master Saburo Kato. Italian artist Alex Turco’s striking interior installations were on display as well.
The evening, produced by Michael Leondas Kirkland for mkarte was filled with spirited conversations about upcoming business ventures, exciting design projects and repeated mentions of the perfect fit of Snaidero’s latest designs. DJ David Bitton‘s music flowed as guests sipped custom “Snaidero orange” cocktails from OR-G, and dined on small bites from Thierry Isambert. Tucked away in a quiet corner of the showroom was a pouring table with free-flowing Macallan 12 single malt Scotch. Representatives from Miele appliances, Compac – The Surfaces Company, Opustone, and Caesarstone were on-hand to discuss their own products used in the Snaidero kitchens.
