Speedforms in the Garden

Speedforms in the Garden, the Pininfarina installation located in CASACOR at Brickell City Centre in Miami, Florida, spans different spaces united by one underlying theme: the progression from the natural to the engineered. The outdoor exhibit features a sculpture garden, five benches, and a deck area with a bar. Speedforms in the Garden sees Pininfarina playing with the opposing forces of nature and technology, blending craftsmanship with engineering to create objects that are both beautiful and functional for everyday use. 

Cosentino, the Spain-based global leader in the production and distribution of innovative surfaces for architecture and design, provided the materials and expertise of natural elements to bring the vision to life. 
Three sculptures, representing the natural in form and material, were crafted from Cuellar's natural stone product, Marble Blanco Macael. The sculptures stand against the Miami urban background evoking a sense of freedom, growth, and nature. Much like naturally-occuring erosion, the sculptures emulate the precision and power with which nature crafts elements into objects. 

Blending emotionality with functionality, the benches in the lounge area and the bar consist of aerodynamic shapes with refined functional aesthetic. The bar features long lines that curve on the opposing ends, reminiscent of automotive design and reflecting Pininfarina’s longstanding history in the field. The overall design is ergonomic, functional, and harmonic. The three pieces composing Speedforms in the Garden present themselves in the form of a sculptural ensemble, and invite the spectator to interact with the spaces, forming an ideal meeting place for the community.
