Design Miami/ is just about here. This major design art fair is open for viewing November 30 to December 4, 2016. The invitation only preview day is November 29th. Design Miami/ is located adjacent to the Miami Beach Convention Center, a short walk from Art Basel in Miami Beach at Meridian Avenue & 19th Street.
It is the global forum for design and it brings together the most influential collectors, gallerists, designers, curators and critics from around the world in celebration of design culture and commerce. Design Miami/ has become the premier venue for collecting, exhibiting, discussing and creating collectible design. At this art fair you will see museum-quality exhibitions of twentieth and twenty-first century furniture, lighting and objets d’art.
During Miami Art Week, every year, there is a competition between design firms to be honored with The Panerai Design Miami/ Visionary Award, and showcase their design in the entrance plaza of Design Miami.
This year, SHoP Architects, has been recognized for their signature employment of next-generation fabrication and delivery techniques, acute attention to detail and imaginative programmatic concepts. They have developed a bold portfolio of projects that combine evocative architecture, philanthropic initiatives, sustainable development and innovative practices and entrepreneurship.
SHoP’s work will be celebrated with an original design by the firm. The project, titled Flotsam & Jetsam, was collaborated with multiple partners; in order, to realize its forward-thinking use of 3D printing and complex structural engineering, including Branch Technology, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Dassault Systèmes, and Thornton Tomasetti.
Once the fair is over, Flotsam & Jetsam will be reinstalled in the Miami Design District’s iconic Jungle Plaza to house an outdoor cultural event space for long-term public enjoyment. The 2016 Panerai Design Miami/ Visionary Award honors the groundbreaking work of SHoP, and the unique commission for Design Miami/ will illustrate SHoP’s commitment to improving the quality of public life with design and architecture.
