Juan Montoya to design Art Miami VIP lounge

 Art Miami, Miami’s longest running contemporary art fair, has partnered with official host hotel, Mandarin Oriental, Miami to engage interior designer Juan Montoya to design a VIP Lounge at Art Miami’s 22nd edition, which will run from November 29 to December 4, 2011.

Montoya will transform a 2,000-square-foot space located in the epicenter of Art Miami’s pavilion where VIP collectors, sponsors and art dealers will converge. Sponsored by Mandarin Oriental, the VIP lounge will feature furnishings from Indonesia, a centerpiece bamboo sculpture, a specially created bar, and cowhide rugs.

Montoya, who was born and spent his early years in Columbia, studied architecture in Bogota before he moved to New York, where he graduated from Parsons School of Design. He founded and owns a design business. He is a member of the Interior Design Hall of Fame and recipient of the honorary Doctor of Fine Arts from Parson School of Design.

Over 100 international galleries participate in Art Miami, an event for collectors, curators, museum professionals and art enthusiasts.
