Design Miami/ Celebrates 10 Years

By Emily Kropp

December 3, 2014

Design Miami/ celebrates 10 years in Miami Beach this week with a fair that is not to be missed. Showcasing 35 galleries from 10 countries, there is something to please any collector’s palette.

In a departure from previous years, the sponsored collaborations were grouped together at the front of the tents, starting with the leather-clad “Being Peter Marino,” honoring the iconic designer and recipient of the inaugural Design Visionary Award. Visitors can get a glimpse at Marino’s collection of antique and contemporary chairs, not to mention a look at the man himself–in wax.

Perrier-Jouët commissioned a new, interactive work from Vienna-based artists Katharina Mischer and Thomas Traxler, titled ephemera. The heart of the piece is a table with thin metal leaves, petals, and fronds that grow out of the woodwork, until the viewer gets too close–at which point the greenery returns to flush with the table. The effect is delightful.

There are a wealth of ceramics at Design Miami/ this year. Among them: cheeky, almost fuzzy-looking vases in lavender and gold by the Haas Brothers at R & Company Gallery, understated round vessels by Adam Silverman at Edward Cella Art + Architecture, and abstract sculptures by Hertha Hillfon at Hostler Burrows. Jason Jaques showcased a variety of ceramics and stoneware artists including Eric Serritella, and Lee Hun Chung at Gallery SEOMI took the medium to a whole new level with a ceramic living room set including a love seat, ottoman, and armchair.

Technology features heavily in this year’s fair, from “living” wall hangings by Dominic Harris, to a grouping of metronomes ticking away at the speed of the stock markets by Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet (both at Priveekollektie).

And for some good old-fashioned fun, there was Studio Job, who showed a bedazzled reimagining of King Kong, upside-down buildings as tables, and a dinner bell at the end of a bendy Eiffel Tower.
