Maison & Objet Americas Announces This Year’s Rising Talents a Month Before the Miami Design Fair

As a prelude to its upcoming design fair, which will be held in Miami next month, Maison&Objet Americas has announced its picks for this year’s Rising Talents. The six up-and-coming designers representing North and South America were chosen by a committee based on their work as designers as well as their commitment to helping usher the design community into the future.

On April 5, two of the six Rising Talents, which include Samuel Amoia, a designer from the United States who uses natural materials in his work, and Javier Gomez, an artist and photographer from Panama who’s based in New York City, attended an event at the Carpenters Workshop Gallery in NYC, along with Maison&Object Americas director Gastón Isoldi, announcing their designation. The six designers will be showcasing some of their work at next month’s fair and there also will be an award ceremony held in their honor.

“[The reason] we selected Javier Gomez is because of the unique way he applies his photography of buildings to design,” Isoldi says. “As for Samuel Amoia, he creates furniture using techniques that are quite innovative. Part of Maison&Objet’s DNA is to promote design and give the Rising Talents a platform to expose their work to buyers and the international media.”
