With so much going on in Miami at the moment it can be a bit overwhelming to keep up with everything that’s happening at Design Miami prominent art week.
With activities all over the city, including Art Basel and Design Miami, we’ve selected the exhibitions and installations that caught our eyes!
Perrier-Jouët’s Cave Of Ceramics
11,000 ceramics in four different shades and 15 different hues make up Metamorphosis, an installation by Andrea Mancuso for Maison Perrier-Jouët at Design Miami. Titled Metamorphosis, the installation at Design Miami is inspired by a painting of the champagne house’s Epernay vineyards during harvest.
Mancuso composed 11,000 ceramic pieces to mimic the natural portrait – he tells me that each one is labelled and part of the scheme to achieve this intricate puzzle.
The Garden of Beauty by Marc Ange
Designer Marc Ange, best-known for the Instagrammable pink Le Refuge canopy, has taken over Italian interiors company Visionnaire’s showroom with The Garden of Beauty. The lush exhibit will debut Ange’s Il Pavone – a series of decorative furniture influenced by peacock feathers.
Please Be Seated by Les Ateliers Courbet and Thirlwall Design
New York design gallery Les Ateliers Courbet and design studio Thirlwall Design have teamed up to present designs from French filmmaker Jacques Tati‘s 1958 film Mon Oncle, which translates as My Uncle. It includes a rocking chair, a seat and a bench produced by design studio Domeau & Pérès and Tati’s estate.
Humanoids by Atelier Van Lieshout
Dutch artist Joep van Lieshout‘s Humanoids are made from aluminium and resemble abstracted human and animal forms. The sculptures are arranged to decorate the short walk that leads from Art Basel Miami Beach at the Miami Beach Convention Center to the Design Miami fair.
Crystal Clear – Limited-Edition Crystal Pieces by Virgil Abloh and Baccarat
During this years’ edition Design Miami, Virgil Abloh has joined forces with french crystal manufacturer Baccarat to design a limited-edition collection of glass objects for the home. Titled “crystal clear”, the family comprises chandeliers, table vessels, and drinking glasses.
Inspired by Abloh’s “figures of speech” exhibition, which is currently touring the US, each piece in the collection seeks to interpret the elegance and poise associated with the 255-year-old Baccarat brand.
