If it is true that we told you that Antidote’s Morning Story is on standby for the sultry summer heat of Florida, it is equally true that when it comes to excellence and commitment in terms of eco-sustainability it was inevitable that for the first pop-up store Antidote leaned on the avant-garde 1Hotel in Miami Beach.

1 Hotel, a philosophy of life well described in the few words expressed by Barry Sterlincht, CEO and Director of the Starwood Capital Group hotel and until 2005 Chairman and CEO of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc: “I wanted to capture the beauty of nature in a hotel and commit myself to safeguard it in the best possible way, a responsibility that I believe we all share. The world.

“We operate with a very simple premise: nature is beautiful and we want to keep it that way. “

A few incisive words, the rest is left to the eyes and wonder of those who walk through the front door.

Entirely played on a palette of neutral and pastel colors, the 1 Hotel is rich in natural elements that vaguely refer to the Mid Modern Century Style: wood, stone, vegetation. Nature, the world as Sterlincht says.

The 1 Hotel design has been studied by the award-winning Meyers Davis Studio in New York and the Brazilian Debora Aguiar Arquitetos, every detail is designed to be exactly where it should be, arousing in the structure and in the form the feeling of peace, calm of mind and relaxation.

LEED certificate, acronym for The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, demonstrates that it possesses the requisites of measurement required to be considered an eco-sustainable building which requires a system composed of a dozen territorial assessment standards, covering all aspects of the development and construction process.

From the bed linen and linen to the service car, the Tesla.

And if it is true that the future of architecture involves the reforestation of green vegetation in every project created by man, and brings, when possible, the exterior inside, it is sufficient to cross the entrance door that opens onto the majestic lobby to notice the work of art developed by 2Alas + Paloma. A live mural, designed by 2Alas (a combination of artists Andrew Antonaccio & Filio Galvez) and decorated with moss, by Paloma Teppa of the Planth The Future studio. Floral visionary Paloma Teppa and Planth The Future, has a corner shop within the same 1Hotel where you can admire and buy her creations. Her artistic optics start from the concept of the biophilia of Edward O. Wilson: a scientific hypothesis proposed in 1984 that empirically detects the innate tendency of man to concentrate his own interest on life and on the vital processes. Because the charm of plants extends beyond the visual aspect and the green nourishes us at all levels, artistic too.
