Miami Art Week is known for bringing together the art community’s biggest buyers, gallerists, and some of the world’s heftiest price tags. But just opposite the Miami Beach Convention Center, home to Art Basel Miami Beach, art and design enthusiasts can wander over to Design Miami, a smaller gathering of design connoisseurs featuring immersive collectible design exhibitions alongside museum-quality solo shows.
The fair’s fifteenth anniversary edition drew collector and visitor numbers totaling 42,000, rounding out a defining decade for the collectible design market. Often dubbed the ‘Capital of Latin America,’ Miami has become the ideal platform for Latin American designers looking to broaden their audience.
Notable fair attendees included none other than Bella Hadid, Leonardo DiCaprio, Pharrell Williams, Elle Macpherson, Nina Dobrev, Rosario Dawson, and designers India Mahavi and Piero Lissoni. To follow is a recap of some of the most unforgettable moments from the week, highlighting the galleries and designers that are setting the trends in collectible design. miami2019.designmiami.com
