Miami knows how to throw a party, and raising awareness for important causes by wrapping them in swanky, cocktail-laden packages is our particular area of expertise. Film producer Peter Glatzer and actor-filmmaker Adrian Grenier, co-founders of sustainable living brand SHFT, brought a refreshing take on the activity by outfitting an Arts & Entertainment District loft with environmentally conscious products and decor.
In partnership with NR Investments (NRI) and collaboration with Hillary Littlejohn Scurtis Design, SHFT curated a studio at Filling Station Lofts that reflects the online platform's call for a cultural shift toward sustainability in design, art, food, and music. The Filling Station unit was filled with furnishings from American artisans and companies that keep an eye on their planetary impact, from an organic California-made sectional, to a stunning fallen tree trunk-based dining table.
SHFT and NRI invited press and locals to see the model loft, hoping to foster the idea that conscious consumers don't have to sacrifice great design. We spoke to Grenier and Glatzer about their inspiration for the event and why Miami is primed to see a change in our surroundings.More »
