Design Miami Highlights

As winter closes in, what better way to lift the spirits than to see the creme de la creme of design art in sunny Miami?  Put your sunglasses on, grab a cocktail and enjoy our selection of most inspirational products at Design Miami 2016. 

 

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

Design Miami Highlights

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

Design Miami Highlights

New York based gallery Friedman Benda is well known for its collaborations with superstars of the design world.  For Design Miami they exhibited the embroidered leather chairs from Marcel Wanders as well as the Block series of carved chairs from Wendell Castle which truly blur the distinction between furniture and sculpture.

 

ammann//gallery

Design Miami Highlights

ammann//gallery set up a beautiful display dominated by a stainless steel and marble table by Barberini Gunnell appropriately entitled "Chained Up Miami".  We also like the Stone Fossil series of resin blocks by Studio Nucleo, all made to resemble precious stones and fossils.
