Design and Photography • Two Worlds Two Sisters
January 24 from 7pm - 9pm

Camilla Matarazzo is an interior designer. Among recent projects she has designed, the Neymar Suite at Casa Cor SP has been praised by both the press and the public.

Passionate for her job, she enjoys challenges, facing each project as an opportunity for creating new solutions. Her inspiration arises of life experiences, readings and travels, but it is the client's personality which ultimately establishes the raw material to conceive the project.

It is a great moment for Architecture in Brazil, which has recently made good taste, technology, and sustainability a priority. Camilla's projects present strong examples of both this philosophy, and Brazilian identity.

Camilla has 20 years experience in architecture and interior design and has designed projects which have stood out in the São Paulo scenery, such as BM&Bovespa, Santos Yacht Club, corporate buildings, and private homes, among others.

Jade Matarazzo. Brazilian born photographer and visual artist Jade has been traveling the world since she left her native country to photograph people's lives, places and cultures.

Her photography background started to take form in Switzerland where she studied Fine Arts and later graduated in Architecture and Interior Design. Specializing in the Tibetan “Miksang” philosophy, Jade created her own trademark by playing with the focal points of her lenses and her camera creating a unique blend of colors and unexpected images.
