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.

‘Nuage’ by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

As part of the growing Miami Design District, the Bouroullec brothers are presenting an outdoor installation that interacts with its surroundings. The steel and coloured-glass pergola is shaped like clouds that manipulate shadows and natural lighting around it. The permenant fixture has another organic element: native plants will engulf the elevated stucture, further merging it with the enviroment.

From 6 December; Miami Design District, 3841 Northeast 2nd Avenue, Miami; www.miamidesigndistrict.net
