One Thousand Museum is an ultra-luxury condominium designed by star architect Zaha Hadid. Located in Downtown Miami, just minutes from South Beach and the Brickell, it rises 62 stories and included 84 museum-quality residences, comprised of 4 duplex townhouses and 10 full-floor penthouses. It was described as “one of the most complex skyscrapers ever to make it off the drawing board”.
G.T. Design’s Fluid collection was used in several common areas in the ground floor and the sky lounge. The rugs, entirely built-in the flooring, are custom-made to reflect Zaha Hadid’s organic and futuristic interiors and furniture. A wave pattern is featured in the lobby and office rugs, while a geometrical theme is carried on the Sky Lounge areas, including the dining room and theatre spaces, mirroring the stunning exteriors of Hadid’s building. The black and grey tones of the rugs complement the ultramodern interiors, and are the perfect backdrop for Hadid’s white sculptural furniture in the lobby and the Sky Lounge’s breathtaking views. All Fluid rugs are hand made in pure wool with a 20% nylon component, and have a 6-10cm thickness, a US requirement for public areas.
G.T.Design also created the textile elements of the two model apartments using a curated selection of the brand’s signature rugs. The custom made designs include bestseller Kama, a viscose rug that capture the light and lets it reflect through its weave; In-Canto, a thin and minimalist rug in a high quality bamboo viscose; Lino, with a natural shine of linen fibers that create elegant nuances of color; Boom, a light bamboo rug; the incomparably soft In- Touch rug, made in Tencel, one of the most eco-compatible fibers on the market; and Passo Doppio, a long handmade rug in a high performance technical yarn. The custom color palette ranges from silver, sand, power pink, to natural hues to accentuate the taupe and green tones of the furniture.
