For Miami Design Week 2017, Design Miami/ has partnered with COS, the fashion brand of choice for men and women who like their design timeless and modern, to stage the COS x Studio Swine installation, New Spring, Miami at one of the most iconic Miami Beach Art Deco locations, The Temple House.
Following its celebrated award winning debut during Salone del Mobile in Milan, New Spring,Miami is the first stop for this multisensory project.
Studio Swine, is the artistic collaboration between Japanese Architect Azusa Murakami and British Artist Alexander Groves. They designed the installation around a focal sculpture that emits mist-filled blossoms that burst and evaporate on contact with skin, but that live on momentarily when met with textured fabrics.
Karin Gustafsson, Creative Director of COS, said of the plans “New Spring, Miami, to me symbolizes exactly what we aim to do with our artist collaborations at COS: create work that reaches as many people as possible and ignites long-lasting partnerships. Alex and Azusa are such wonderful talents, we are so pleased to take this project to Miami Beach.”
“Design Miami/ is thrilled to partner with COS for our 2017 show,” said Rodman Primack, Chief Creative Officer of Design Miami/. “Experiencing COS and Studio Swine’s New Spring installation at Milan Design Week was especially meaningful for Design Miami/ as Studio Swine were selected by us as 2015 Designers of the Future. Collaborating with a thoughtful brand like COS who continues to support new and emerging talent in innovative ways is extremely satisfying and we all look forward to bringing this energy and vision to the fair with Studio Swine’s multi-sensory, interactive offering for all design enthusiasts to enjoy in Miami.”
