Meridian Avenue & 19th Street, Miami Beach

0 Comments on this event

This year at the Design Miami entrance plaza visitors can relax in an inspired, oval green space created by West 8 Landscape architects, outfitted with 101 wooden logs recycled from the recent Irma storm. The temporary park installation assembles the atmosphere of the future park to come. Design Miami will take place from December 6 to December 10. 

Over the next year, West 8 Landscape architects in collaboration with Fentress architects and the city of Miami Beach are developing the design to transform the current parking lot into a public park for residents and guests to celebrate and enjoy South Florida's weather outdoors, year-round. 

About Design Miami

Design Miami/ is the global forum for design. Each fair brings together the most influential collectors, gallerists, designers, curators and critics from around the world in celebration of design culture and commerce. Occurring alongside the Art Basel fairs in Miami, USA each December and Basel, Switzerland each June, Design Miami/ has become the premier venue for collecting, exhibiting, discussing and creating collectible design.

Design Miami/ is more than a marketplace for design, where the world’s top galleries gather to present museum-quality exhibitions of twentieth and twenty-first century furniture, lighting and objets d’art. Each show balances exclusive commercial opportunities with progressive cultural programming, creating exciting collaborations with designers and design institutions, panels and lectures with luminaries from the worlds of design, architecture, art and fashion, and unique commissions from the world’s top emerging and established designers and architects.

By continuously expanding and enriching its program, Design Miami/ seeks to not only satisfy the demand for a high-end design fair, but also to broaden awareness of modern and contemporary design, fuel the market for collectible design, and provide an exciting yet accessible destination for collectors and enthusiasts alike.
