Arts, wine and design present at the US Launching of Chilean design company Piso12

Chilean company Piso12 (“12th Floor”) is a platform where different designers, artists and professionals are brought together in one space to develop objects collectively driven by elegance, quality and an aesthetic following current trends.

An essential aspect of Piso12’s work is the use of traditional techniques, materials and honor Chile’s native peoples’ universe incorporating references to their cosmogony and culture. With this in mind, Piso12 has created an in-house collection of Baby Alpaca garments for men and women recently launched in Chile. Together with Mauricio Nuñez , a Chilean haute-couture designer, Piso12 will set up a fine fashion exhibition.

This collection will be presented in a unique event called Wine and Roots, on the 16th of September, along with an exhibition of handcrafts and art specially designed for the exhibit. This event has been possible thanks to the collaboration of the Embassy of Chile in the US.
