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.

Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero, the artists behind Luftwerk, are the creatives behind Perrier-Jouët’s ephemeral installations in Miami this year. The Chicago-based duo have not only tapped the champagne house’s art nouveau and nature-tinged heritage for its colourful, quixotic environment at Design Miami, but also for a fantastical takeover of Herzog & de Meuron’s 1111 Lincoln Road carpark that will be enveloped in light projections.
