Whitewall Winter 2015 Luxury Issue Debuts in Miami

Katy Donoghue

1 December 2014

This week marks the launch of Whitewall’s winter 2015 Luxury Issue (along with a new art fair insider resource, Whitewaller). The issue launches in Miami, and features the designer, architect, and collector Peter Marino on the cover, shot by Jesse Shadoan. He’ll be making a splash at two separate spaces this month. First, he’ll be honored with the Design Visionary Award from Design Miami/, which will involve a black leather exhibition booth within the fair complete with his bronze boxes, architectural models, and chair collection. Then, his first-ever museum solo exhibition will open at the Bass Museum. Entitled “One Way,” it will tell the story of the architect and designer through the art he collects, his relationship with artists, and a few new commissions by artists like Erwin Wurm and Farhad Moshiri.

The architecture of Herzog & de Meuron is another big presence in Miami. We speak with the firm’s Jacques Herzog and Christine Binswanger about their three big projects in the city: 1111 Lincoln Road, the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), and the soon-to-open Jade Signature.

And aside from the issue’s focus on Miami, we return to the theme of New Luxury once more. There has been a move toward the handmade in the world of luxury, and that is trend is continuing. This time around we uncovered a pursuit of curious materials and techniques. Visiting Monique Pean felt a lot like going on an archeological dig (but with more diamonds and less dust). She uses fossilized woolly mammoth, dinosaur bone, walrus tusk, and other obscure elements to create necklaces, cuffs, earrings, and rings inspired by her travels (most recently to Norway).

We also spend time at the home of Zadig & Voltaire’s Thierry Gillier to view his collection set against ornate interiors of his Parisian pied-à-terre, learn from worldwide restaurateur Mr. Chow about his painting practice, and find out why artist David Altmejd is more comfortable if not everyone likes him. Be sure to get your hands on a copy this week in Miami and decide for yourself!
