Detail & Description
In 2001, while vacationing in Punta del Este, I met Carlos Ott through a mutual friend. His stories of his beginnings
as a young automobile designer in Uruguay always impressed me. Carlos spoke with such passion of the lines and elegance
of cars. He always said he studied architecture to please his father but his real love lies with automotive design. His
buildings epithomize the purity of the bold strokes of car designs. For years, we waited for the right project to come along
so we could work together. Finally, we created a match made in heaven. Pininfarina, the preeminent design firm dating
back to 1930, has always been associated with the best avant garde car and product designs. Their name is inscribed in
every Ferrari, Masserati, Rolls-Royce and Alfa Romeo; while being in the cutting edge of industrial and interior design.
Today, these two denizens of bold, sleek style cross paths with a 21st century design collaboration – 1100 Millecento.
Since 1979, the Related Group has cultivated a reputation for design excellence and innovative partnerships. We have
brought together the world’s best urbanists, architects, interior designers, and real estate minds to the benefit of Miami
and other design-savvy cities throughout the world. This latest collaboration between Carlos Ott and Pininfarina is one of
our most prolific pairings… raising the bar, once again, for the standard of livable design.
