#DesignMiami : Craig Robins and Miami Design District Press Conference
This past Monday afternoon I had the great privilege of being included in the hard hat tour of the Miami Design District’s latest projects and previewing the exhibitions and in-store installations during Art Basel and Design Miami/ 2013 given by real estate developer extraordinaire Craig Robins, recently featured in the New York Times, together with Mathieu Le Bozec on behalf of Dacra and L Real Estate.
From December 3 – 8, the Miami Design District will present a dynamic line-up of installations, events and environments highlighting the best artists and designers from both Miami and abroad. The range of exhibitions mix art, design, fashion and culture in striking and unusual ways – A Maison Martin Margiela collaboration with Swarovski, Berluti’s presentation of pieces by designer Maarten Baas, a TAPAS exhibition that explores Spanish design adapted to gastronomy, limited edition pieces by Paul Noble produced by The Rug Company, Wallpaper* Handmade’s exhibition with Jaguar, a presentation from Louis Vuitton of work by renowned French designer Charlotte Perriand and a diverse array of exhibitions from the KIWI Arts Group including an interactive experience featuring Goggle Glass™ (for David Datuna’s Viewpoint of Billions). The breadth and scope of the programming is a reflection of the neighborhood’s commitment to celebrate creativity in all its forms.
Also, tucked among some of the top luxury stores in the world, including Céline, Dior Homme, Hermès, Louis Vuitton and Prada, are a selection of top galleries, and private collections such as the de la Cruz Contemporary Art Space, Craig Robins Collection and Locust Projects.
Afterwards we treated to a fabulous reception at the Rooftop Garden.
The Miami Design District is well on its way to becoming a global center of luxury, art, design and fashion !
