With the 2009 edition, Design Miami celebrates its 5th Anniversary. Design Miami starts a day earlier than the art fair Art Basel Miami Beach (ABMB), and presents works that could also easily be shown at ABMB, Maarten Baas’ Real Time project, for example, or the Workshop Workshop project by Jim Drain, Graham Hudson and P. Scott Cunningham.
Design Miami shows modern and contemporary design objects from 17 galleries from around the world in a stylish tent designed by Aranda/Lasch. There’s a retrospective of the work of Maarten Baas, who is featured as the designer of the year, a design performance by techno-design pioneer Moritz Waldemeyer and rock band OK Go, and a huge installation by architect and designer Greg Lynn for Swarovski Crystal Palace (interviews with Greg Lynn, Maarten Baas and Atelier Oi coming soon)!
