In the center of mid-town sits a space that some in the know have equated to Andy Warhol’s New York Factory. Most likely, you’ve driven by it a thousand times. It is where art, artists, design and designers mix, mingle and make things happen. It is the half-time home of legendary hometown car designer and artist Camilo Pardo. As Design Chief, Camilo has spearheaded some of Ford’s most visually stunning cars including the 2002 Ford GT40 Concept Car and the 2005-2006 Ford GT series.
When not at his LA studio, Camilo often spends time here designing clothes, cars, and airplanes, and/or painting colorful oil paintings which depict cars, racing and much much more. Visit this eclectic and industrious space and meander around Camilo’s works in progress. Your head will spin like any one of his four Egg Chairs, or the evolution of his collection of exotic cars and motorbikes that circle in and out of the living room. Many legendary parties have been hosted here, including the annual International Auto Show who’s who of designers mix-up. That party has been written up in the New York Times. Come visit the historic Bankle Building and teeter on the artistic edge of Detroit.
