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.

Exhibiting as part of Design Miami’s Curio programme this year, Lindsey Adelman presents a particularly personal project that combines her lighting expertise with her interest in the overlap of science and nature. Inspired by the writings of physicist and philosopher Carlo Rovelli, the designer was prompted to question our understanding of the world in sculptural form. The resulting creation comprises seven suspended pieces and is adorned with sensual bronze, porcelain, alabaster and stone embellishments. We can’t wait to peek into her glowing cabinet of curiosities. Photography: Lauren Coleman
