Chamber

Design Miami Highlights

Chamber gallery from New York gallery presented a strong collection of unique objects, including XXX by Niek Pulles, a couple of of car seats covered with blue acoustic foam which look like something out of Aliens.  We also like Car Crash by Studio Job, a striking sculpture / occasional table in their trademark extravagant style.

 

Cristina Grajales Gallery

Design Miami Highlights

Cristina Grajales Gallery has long been in the forefront of design art with focus on contemporary works, including furniture.  Our eyes were caught by Betil Dagdelen's Alloy Bench, made with marine ropes and upholstery, as well as the stunningly sculptural Mathias coffee table, made with hand-hammered polished brass. 

 

Sarah Myerscough Gallery

Sarah Myerscough offers a multidisciplinary platform for artist-makers with special interest in craftsmanship.  They showed new works by Joseph Walsh and Christopher Duffy, who both have very different interpretations of nature. 

 

Friedman Benda
