Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Returning to the Messeplatz from June 13–18 and online via Matterport, the 17th iteration of Design Miami/ Basel encompasses a special fair concept focused on collectible design. The occasion welcomes an intimate lineup of 24 leading galleries in the field whose rosters have helped shape the collectible design market as it exists today.
“We are excited to return to Basel with a special edition of the fair, honoring many of the galleries who we have collaborated with for years,” said Jen Roberts, CEO of Design Miami/. “We hope the fair will serve as a valuable meeting point for gallerists, collectors, and design enthusiasts from around the world to share and discover works presented by the foremost experts in the field of historic and contemporary design.”
A unique array of old to new will see presenting spaces that bring everything from historical objects and contemporary works to one-of-a-kind pieces, collaborative designs, and more. A few highlights to look out for across the show floor include Galerie Patrick Seguin’s showcase of items from the French designer Jean Prouvé, presented alongside 20th-century designs by the likes of Charlotte Perriand and Jean Royère; Friedman Benda’s display of iconic chairs from names like Wendell Castle, Andrea Branzi, Shiro Kuramata, nendo, Samuel Ross, and Faye Toogood; and from Thomsen Gallery is a showcase highlighting the art of the Japanese bamboo basket throughout the years.
Other galleries in attendance include a strong presence hailing from Paris, like Galerie kreo, Paris Galerie Eric Philippe, Galerie SCENE OUVERTE, Gokelaere & Robinson, Ketabi Bourdet Design, MOUVEMENTS MODERNES, and Jousse Entreprise, Galleria Rossella Colombari and DIMOREGALLERY from Milan, Pierre Marie Giraud of Brussels, and the Monaco-based space Lebreton.
