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.

‘Les Araignées et Le Refuge' by Marc Ange

Design devotees won’t soon forget Salone del Mobile’s most Instagrammed installation this year: Marc Ange’s pink oasis at the Wallpaper* Handmade exhibition. The oversized daybed is making a comeback for Miami, but this time, Ange is setting it to unreachable heights outside the Faena Hotel, and countering it with an installation polar-opposite in mood, in the form of a range of armchairs that evoke an ominous essence of spiders.

5-10 December; Faena Hotel, 3201 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach; www.bloomroomstudio.com
