Design Miami/ 2019 returns to Miami Beach at the newly completed Pride Park

DesignMiami/ returns to Miami Beach next month December 3–8 for its fifteenth edition with some exciting changes. The fair will take place for the first time in the recently completed Pride Park, with its entrance now directly facing the entrance to Art Basel Miami Beach.

The fair is also opening its doors to the public in new ways: the reconfigured tent has a glass facade at the entrance to house the new Design Forum presented by SCAD, which will be open to the public throughout the week for cultural programming. The discussions taking place in the Design Forum will also be broadcast outside the tent for passersby.

“We are thrilled to present this edition of Design Miami/ in the newly completed, 6-acre park, named Pride Park. What once was a parking lot has been transformed into an additional public greenspace next to the Miami Beach Botanical Garden,” says Jennifer Roberts, CEO, Design Miami/. 

Design Miami/ is the global forum for design. Each fair brings together the most influential collectors, gallerists, designers, curators, and critics from around the world in celebration of design culture and commerce. Occurring alongside the Art Basel fairs in Miami, Florida each December and Basel, Switzerland each June, Design Miami/ is the premier venue for collecting, exhibiting, discussing, and creating collectible design.

Design Coolness: GUILD Eyewear

Guild Handcrafted Eyewear is one of my fave design finds for October! Their frames are just what a discerning eyewear connoisseur, like moi, needs to stand out from the rest.

Trying to find frames that stand out and are well-made has been one of my missions ever since I started wearing glasses in college. Over the years, I have only found a handful of frames that meet both criteria, so it’s nice to “discover” a company like GUILD Eyewear that not only has the same aesthetics as I do but also loves eyewear like I do.

Design Miami/Basel 2016

Design Miami/Basel 2016, which took place June 14-19, had its strongest showing so far!

This 11th edition featured strong programming, like the Design Talks/ panel with designers Formafantasma, rugmaker Alexandra Kehayoglou and jewelry maker David Bielender moderated by Christian Larson, associate curator of modern and contemporary art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

There were also epic collaborations like the Collectors Lounge/ designed by Kuehn Malvezzi with the support of Artek and Kvadrat.  And wonderful satellite exhibitions, including one that featured innovative works by the iconic Zaha Hadid.

And if you weren’t able to be at this year’s spectacular edition,  watching the updates from the forum on Instagram , Facebook, Twitter was almost as good as actually being there.

Looking at this year’s highlights, via Camron PR, I cannot wait for December’s Design Miami/ 2016 in South Beach!

Take A Look: 4-3-16

Every week, I come across sites, stories and updates that catch my eye online and usually I just re-tweet, share or repost the link on whatever platform I’m on at the time.

While that’s not bad, I think it’s time to keep better track of them by doing post updates here too!
