From December 6 through December 10, Design Miami will present 4 Dutch gallerists at the fair.
Rotterdam-based Galerie VIVID, founded by Saskia Copper and Aad Krol in 1999, was among the first to show contemporary design in the context of both design and art. The gallery’s solo exhibitions have presented important – mostly Dutch – contemporary designers, but also great designers from the twentieth century. In 2013 Galerie VIVID organised the first ever Gerrit Rietveld exhibition in a Dutch gallery. Among works by international designers,
Galerie VIVID will present work by the following Dutch designers: Gerrit Rietveld, Piet Zwart, Wim Crouwel, Olivier van Herpt, Erik Andriesse, Scholten & Baijings, Arnout Meijer, Christie van der Haak, Aldo Bakker, Joost van Rooijen, Jan van der Vaart en Floris Meydam.

CARPENTERS WORKSHOP GALLERY
Carpenters Workshop Gallery produces and exhibits functional sculptures by international rising and established artists and designers going outside their traditional territories of expression. The gallery relies on the partnership of childhood friends, Julien Lombrail and Loic le Gaillard. Carpenters Workshop is actively involved in the research and production of the limited edition works exhibited. It transcends classical borders in terms of art and design, as its proposal stands just at the intersection of these two universes, reaching precisely a symbiosis of art and design. The gallery’s choices are guided by the research of an emotional, artistic and historical relevance – relevance that appears as evidence.
