Mangroove Collection

The Mangroove is a bohemian-chic luxury hotel in Papagayo Bay nestled among mangroves and forests on Panama Beach. The hotel is inspired by simple, relaxed and attractive luxury within a modern linear architecture with natural furniture and subtle touches of color that induce guests to bask in its simplicity.

Paulina Ortiz / arte+diseño had the opportunity to work together with Diseño Interno on this hotel, jointly or independently designing several of the luminaires produced for the hotel’s public areas.

Autoparts Collection

The Autoparts Collection was included in the sustainable design project of Paulina Ortiz, arte+diseño in collaboration with the Purdy Motors Group, a company whose integrated business strategy addresses long-term, sustainable social, environmental and economic interests.

Renewable and reusable natural materials were used in creating these luminous objects, and their creation will always be subject to the serendipitous availability of used and discarded TOYOTA auto parts.

Paper and cloth offset the rigid, industrial metal structures of these parts, complementing them and making them reusable in a practical, friendly way for the spectator and the environment.
