Miami just wrapped up its two celebrated art and design fairs, and S. B. Long has been savoring the inspired offerings from the world’s leading artists and artisans. Art Basel gets a much-deserved platform for its incredible catalogue of contemporary art, so we thought we’d highlight some work from the lesser-known but still essential Design Miami:
Designer of the Year David Adjaye did an amazing architectural installation that welcomed attendees.
Below are some of Sue’s favorite objets from Design Miami’s international galleries:
Haresh Lalvani’s laser-cut and bent steel sculpture, Hyper Surface: Constellation, at Moss.
Jeanne Quinn’s jaw-dropping light installation, Everything Is Not As It Seems, at Todd Merrill.
Christien Meindertsma’s Oak Inside carved cabinet at Dutch gallery Priveekollektie Contemporary Art/Design.
Joaquim Tenreiro’s august custom Jacaranda table with leather drawers at R. 20th Century/New York.
Of course we still love following Art Basel, and Sue was especially taken with a majestic Frank Stella on display at Edward Tyler Nahem. Visit this site for a look.
Miami is bursting with visual inspiration this season. We salute the visionaries who made this show a milestone on the global Design calendar.
