Design Miami/ 2012 Best in Show

By Tory Noll

December 5, 2012

This year, Design Miami/ is back and dressed to impress; with beautiful and impressive works from both veterans of the show and those new to the fair. There is so much to see and so many covetable objects, we’ve compiled a list of the best and brightest takeaways. Take a look.

Best use for man’s best friend: This coffee table, at Galerie Downtown in Paris, is everything you love about your dog: it’s adorable, won’t bark at strangers, and will never leave your side. It may not fetch you for slippers, but it will hold your drink.

Best use of bubbles: We couldn’t decide between the literal and interpretive, so we have two winners here. Booo, from the Netherlands, presented the Surface Tension Lamp (Front, 2012). What looked like bare light bulbs hanging from the ceiling were actually big soap bubbles that continually emerged around an LED. And in a more physical interpretation, these felty Mutation Lounges (Maarten de Ceulaer, 2012) at Industry Gallery are fun and dark all at once.

Best use of ceramics: These chairs, at Galerie Seomi, won’t hold a bouquet of roses, but they are impeccably chic and interpret the ceramic medium in a totally unique way.

Best way to bring the garden indoors: David Wiseman’s pomegranate design series is clean and beautiful at R 20th Century. Especially this opulent mirror garlanded in white and bronze pomegranate branches.

Best use of the third dimension: These sconces at Galleria Rossetta Colombari look like holograms but are actually LED elevations of lamps. This whimsical design is a modern twist on tromp l’oeil.
