From Jun 3rd through 5th, 2008.
Not only Basel comes to Miami in the winter, but also happens the reverse in the summer. Design Miami, our local design fair, will anchor in Switzerland during the Art Basel days. Regarded as a global forum for collecting, exhibiting, discussing and creating design, the fair brings together the world’s most influential dealers, designers, collectors, curators and critics to celebrate and explore the ever-shifting boundaries of design.
The 2008 show will feature installations by the world’s leading historical and contemporary design galleries. The program also includes a series of design talks covering the current design culture; satellite exhibitions curated by leading design institutions; and the Designer of the Future Award recognizing an emerging designer or collective that has been practicing for less than 15 years. The Design Miami/ Designer of the Future recipient has produced a body of work demonstrating promise in creative approach and quality of finish; exhibits an interest in experimental, non-industrial or limited edition design; and generally makes a noteworthy contribution to design discourse.
