Design Icons, Artistry And Modern Craft Trends From Design Miami 2011
A barometer more for establishing what will become a future design classic than what is hot right now, some of these examples from the recent design fair have potential to filter down to the mass market.
For those who haven’t had the opportunity to visit South Beach for Design Miami the first week in December, it is easier to tell you what it’s not, then what it is. You won’t be confronted by a massive exhibition hall full of manufacturers and vendors all competing for attention. Design Miami is the furthest thing from a trade show. Instead, a carefully selected list of design-centric galleries and retailers are invited to show works which they deem important to people passionate about owning and collecting limited and or mass produced items. It is an event celebrating functional art.
