Offering a diverse array of sinuous and sensual
design pieces in pleasingly rustic mediums, Brazil-
born Ovoo may be the next greatest thing to hit
the Miami Design District.
TEX T BY RYAN JARRELL
Receiving yet another boon as the cultural gateway to the global
south, Art Week Miami saw the North American premiere of
Brazilian design house Ovoo in our own Design District. Founded
by aesthete, entrepreneur and patriot Marta Micheli, Ovoo brings
a distinctly Brazilian voice to Miami’s design consciousness.
With a lineup of artists representing a veritable who’s who in the
Brazilian luxury design world, works by such celebrated talents as
Zanini De Zanine and Sergio Rodrigues offer Miami décor devotees
a glimpse of a country steadily emerging as a trendsetter in the
international design scene. Specializing in the pastoral materials
of leather and authentic indigenous hardwoods, Ovoo’s pieces
offer a decidedly primeval inverse to Miami’s more common ultra-
modern Art Deco mode; 3650 N. Miami Ave.; Ovoo-Original.com.
