A global forum for design, that’s the best way to describe Design Miami/, will happen next December 2 – 6 in Miami Beach. Since 2005 this is the place to find some of the most coveted collectible design pieces in the USA.
The show helped to create a new market for limited-edition design, with galleries showing talented young designers who produced experimental work, something different from contemporary art because it’s used in different ways.
At its 10th anniversary Design Miami/ will be located near the Miami Beach Convention Center, a short walk from Art Basel in Miami Beach. Each show is a celebration of design, culture, and commerce and it reunites the most influential collectors, gallerists, designers, curators, and critics from around the world. Occurring alongside the Art Basel fair in Miami Beach each December and Basel, Switzerland each June, Design Miami/ has become the premier venue for collecting, exhibiting, discussing, and creating collectible design.
