India Mahdavi Unveils New Rattan Pieces - and a Major Mural! - at Ralph Pucci's Miami Showroom

Architectural Digest - December  2018

India Mahdavi

“Rattan hasn’t always been considered a noble material,” says Paris-based architect and designer India Mahdavi. “But if there’s one place in the world it could be really appreciated, it’s Miami.” With that sentiment in mind, Mahdavi developed a suite of furnishings for Ralph Pucci’s Miami design gallery to show off the flexible reed’s myriad uses. The material bends to form the frames of elegant dining chairs and a curved settee and is pieced into intricate marquetry for tabletops resembling rays of sunshine. Typical of Mahdavi, the warm, natural material is punched up with her favorite eclipse motif, rendered atop a lacquered cocktail table, seating cushions, and a massive mural that wraps the building’s sweeping façade.
