Design Miami 2017 preview
The 13th edition of Design Miami (6-10 December) will soon be in full swing as the global creative community descends on the city, all in the name of design and art – and the Floridian sun and sea, of course. This year sees an energised focus on the expanding Design District, with a flock of new boutiques, restaurants, and Paradise Plaza almost doubling the creative neighbourhood’s footprint from last year. The art scene, too, has much cause to celebrate, with the recent reopening of local institutions. Here, we map out the unmissable exhibitions and events, so you can get Miami’s teenage kicks right through the night.

For their tenth Miami foray, Fendi has again partnered with curator Maria Cristina Didero to commission a suite of living room furniture. Designed by Veneto-born, Milan-based Chiara Andreatti, the collection – entitled ‘Welcome!’ – has been inspired by a host of influences including ideas of countrified luxury, the designs of Gabriella Crespi, and elements of the Fendi universe. Featured in the range is large Japanese-inspired pendant lamps, ceramics that riff off primitive and classical forms, and two thrones that pay homage to Koloman Moser.
