On the evening of Wednesday, December 4th, the Mondrian South Beach hosted an Art Basel Cocktail Reception, where world-renowned French sculptor Richard Orlinski took over the hotel with his breathtaking wildlife pieces. In partnership with Markowicz Fine Art, Orlinski exhibited sculptures from his “Born Wild” collection.
Designed after revolutionary Dutch designer Marcel Wanders, the Mondrian South Beach’s whimsical and visionary style blended seamlessly with Orlinski’s brightly colored, contemporary creations. Orlinski’s colossal, fiberglass sculptures were featured in the hotel’s lobby and outdoor pool deck, which offers spectacular views of Biscayne Bay.
Guests enjoyed complimentary hors d’oeuvres and cocktails courtesy of Fords Gin and East Imperial Superior Beverages, who also provided a DIY gin and tonic bar for guests to partake in.
