Design Miami/ is the global forum for design. Each fair brings together the most influential collectors, gallerists, designers, curators and critics from around the world in celebration of design culture and commerce. Occurring alongside the Art Basel fairs in Miami, USA each December and Basel, Switzerland each June, Design Miami/ has become the premier venue for collecting, exhibiting, discussing and creating collectible design.
Design Miami/ Basel returns June 12–17 for its thirteenth edition featuring forty-six gallery presentations and ten Curio installations as well as Satellites, Collaborations, Design Talks and exclusive events. Design Miami/ Basel 2018 also incorporates a number of exciting programs.
This year’s fair’s Design at Large ambitious installation is envisioned by photographer Françoise Halard, known for his distinctive images of interior spaces and architecture.
