Establishing itself as one of the most important American fairs for contemporary design, Design Miami brought together international galleries from 10 different countries, and featured an exclusive program of events.
This year Pavilion was commissioned to the Minneapolis-based designer Jonathan Muecke, who created a double-layered circular structure with apertures at both poles, that suggested a light and airy organization of spaces.
In addition, this year’s special guest, the American architect Peter Marino - who is best known for designing store concepts for luxury brands, and who is the winner of Design Miami's inaugural Design Visionary award - presented One Way: Peter Marino, a solo-exhibition curated by Jérôme Sans, at the Bass Museum of Art. The exhibition features both Marino's own projects and selected contemporary art from his private collection, which includes artworks by Damien Hirst, Anselm Kiefer, and Andy Warhol, among others. The focus of this year was put on ceramic art. The work of the Haas Brothers (R & Company},Adam Silverman (Edward Cella Art + Architecture), Lee Hun Chung (Gallery SEOMI), and Hertha Hillfon (Hostler Burrows) were particularly outstanding. With a cutting-edge approach to design and a special eye for the market’s trends, Design Miami reconfirmed its role as a global forum for design that attracts the world’s most influential collectors, gallery-owners, designers, curators and critics.
