Design Miami/ returns to Miami Beach December 6–10 for its thirteenth edition as the global forum for design, bringing together the most influential collectors, gallerists, designers, curators, and critics. This year, the fair presents thirty-four galleries and eleven Design Curio installations––its largest selection of Design Curios to date––and a robust offering of Satellites, Collaborations, Design Talks, and exclusive events, all located steps away from Art Basel Miami Beach, the premier art show in the Americas. Gallery Debuts, Founding Galleries, and Standout Solo Shows/ Thirty-four of the world’s leading design galleries will present exhibitions, including four galleries that are making their Design Miami/ debut: Converso (New York), which presents modern furnishings and objects, including furniture by architects, rare prototypes, and limited editions, and will highlight California modernist architect Albert Frey; Lebreton (San Francisco), with a special feature on Jacques Quinet along with works by Magdalena Abakanowicz, and François Raty; Maison Gerard (New York), known since 1974 for their extensive collection of French Art Deco as well as, more recently, their contemporary lighting, sculpture, and ceramics, and will show a monumental Isolation Sphere by Maurice-Claude Vidili; and Siegelson (New York) who specializes in the dealing of precious gemstones and rare jewelry. Seven galleries that have exhibited at Design Miami/ since its founding will again present reliably outstanding displays of historic and contemporary collectible design: Cristina Grajales Gallery (New York); Demisch Danant (New York); Galerie kreo (Paris and London); Galerie Patrick Sequin (Paris); LAFFANOUR – Galerie Downtown (Paris); Magen H Gallery (New York); and R & Company (New York). Notable presentations include solo shows at Galerie kreo, featuring limited-edition design work from Paris-based brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec whose designs span from small objects and furniture to expansive spatial installations and architecture, from the handcrafted to the industrial; and Magen H Gallery, which is featuring furniture by French designer and master wood craftsman Pierre Chapo, who counted among his influences Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand, and Frank Lloyd Wright. Another highlighted presentation is at the Future Perfect (New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles), whose exhibition is centered on the work of Eric Roinestad’s singular handcrafted ceramic objects, which are inspired by the spirit of California folk modernism and his Scandinavian heritage.
