This December Miami Ironside explodes into an art and design mecca on the Upper Eastside for an 8-day activation featuring bespoke art exhibitions, a FIAT 500 showcase by official automotive partner FIAT USA, lounge by iconic designer Ron Arad (b. 1951, Tel Aviv) for Italian artisan-company Moroso, panel discussions, music performances, Mindball Interactive Gaming Experience, and catered events by celebrated Italian restaurateur Tommaso Morelato of Toscana Divino.
The weeklong event will offer art and design patrons a creative escape and meeting point to socialize and exchange creative thoughts and ideas amongst industry friends.
Daily, 11am – 6pm
Mindball Interactive Gaming Experience | Ron Arad Moroso Lounge
A unique gaming experience that goes against the conventional competitive concept of physical activity and adrenalin – teaching focus and relaxation techniques, a player channels electrical activity in the brain via a biosensor system to move a ball to the opponent’s side. Mindball is an exciting and social game where the audience watches the ball, players’ physical cues and brain activity graphics on a monitor. Mindball was created for science centers attracting interest of mainstream customers, including The Coca Cola Company, Nike Inc., WIRED Magazine, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Barclays Bank and BBC.
