Picture this: a unique space designed to showcase art in all its forms. A place where furnishings come alive in inspirational shapes and original paintings add energy to the environment. Welcome to Wynwood Lab, a members-only design and lifestyle laboratory in the heart of Miami’s eclectic Wynwood Arts District.
Having made its debut this December during world-renowned art festival Art Basel, the venue blends right into the prestigious Wynwood Arts District. And with a curated selection of original art, one-of-a-kind furniture –and more— housed in an urban loft-style setting, Wynwood Lab is no traditional retail space.
“The facility will host interior designers, art collectors, and key media who are wanting to see the newest most innovative products for the home and hospitality industries in a lifestyle setting,” said Christi Tasker, co-owner of the Wynwood Lab. “To even be considered for inclusion in the Wynwood Lab, products must be something very special!”
That’s one reason why celebrity designer Erinn Valencich selected a floor from the Envique™ Collection to ground the experimental lab – not only because of the authentic look and feel of each Envique™ floor, but because the laminate floor could stand up to the wear and tear of heavy foot traffic. She explained, “The Wynwood Lab is only interested in products that offer the highest levels of design and style, so Lineage Oak from Quick•Step’s new Envique Collection is the perfect flooring choice for this commercial space.”
“I wanted to keep the floors and walls neutral, so we could really let the furniture and art shine!” added Valencich. “That being said, I needed a floor that has personality and works well in a loft/warehouse style building, but at the same time offers such a high degree of style that I can put elegant furnishings on top of it — this floor does all of that!”
The lab’s aim is to provide a space in Wynwood for high-end luxury brands to host events, as well as a unique VIP experience for key hospitality purchasers, high-end retail buyers, and upscale interior designers.
