Ideas and trends are happening a few steps away from Art Basel, the event that knows the most about how to dialog with art
Design Miami opens today, bringing an air of creativity to sunny Florida. At the opening, the Miami art world will be here, from Mark Spiegler, global director of Art Basel, to artists and collectors from everywhere, among them, the splendid Magda Gomes. Here, more than in any other place in the design world, the tastes tend toward pop, with some extravagance that borders on kitsch, but one that comforts us with tasteful flights to the classic and of vintage one-of-a-kind fashion. In any case, to the eyes of we art lovers (we leave this to others better qualified to judge), Design Miami is a true feast for the eyes and the mind.
There are special projects in every corner: Maison Perrier-Jouët /Becoming, created by the maison in collaboration with the artists Petra Bachmaier and Sean Galler of Luftwerk – Chicago, and the Audi project, The Audi Motherboard, the splendid A8 electric car design experiment. A few stands away is the fascinating booth of Louis Vuitton — Objets Nomades with it’s limited author editions. To stoke your creativity, we propose a roundup of the best sessions and offerings that inspire you at Design Miami 2017. Check out our site and tweet us your thoughts. And above all, stay connected to the VIP preview of Art Basel Miami.
