Best of Design Miami 2017

From Dec. 6–10, Design Miami returns as a main attraction in Miami Beach. Here, we’ve selected our favorite presentations.

Marking its 13th year, the annual Design Miami opens tomorrow, with 34 galleries hailing from New York, London, Paris, Milan, and beyond. This years furniture, lighting, jewelry, and other objets dart on view take a decidedly keen focus on craft. Our favorite is Patrick Parrishs strong, yet nicely coherent, mix of work by Bec Brittain, Clemens Kois, Julian Watts, and others. Guests are greeted with a big architectural moment, with Salon 94s presentation of Philippe Malouins outsize poured concrete Core sculpture, which sits near an architectural model of the Bouroullec brothers outdoor installation for the citys Design District. Its a powerful way to begin ones journey through the fair, which runs through Dec. 10.
