Design Miami/ 2021 - Your Global Design Showcase

Nov 15, 2021 November 15, 2021

All design, interior and furniture collectors are on high alert this year as Design Miami is back with its full lineup of premiere international galleries, designers and talks for all to enjoy. If you’re a collector, or are looking for that one stand-out piece for your home or condo, you won’t want to miss the offerings of gorgeous one-of-a-kind furnishings, textiles, ceramics, and art objects. 

This year, you’ll have an opportunity to pick from the most cutting-edge furniture, lighting design, interior décor, and collectable art objects at the world’s premier showcase for global design, Design Miami/, coming to Pride Park in Miami Beach for Miami Art Week 2021. Founded in 2005, Design Miami/ has grown into the world’s most important design forum, bringing together the most influential players in the field of design from around the globe.

Returning to its original location at Pride Park, located on 19th Street and Convention Center Drive, across from the Miami Beach Convention Center, Design Miami/ re-opens for in-person participation with a new Curatorial Director, Wava Carpenter. The fair will present over 35 Gallery and Curio exhibitions in a hybrid in-person and virtual format. Following the Press and VIP Previews beginning on November 30, Design Miami/ will open its doors to the public from December 1st through 5th at various Miami venues, and online at https://shop.designmiami.com/.

Design Miami/ Human Kind


“The 17th edition of Design Miami/ brings a myriad of reasons for celebration - from returning to our home in Pride Park to our Human Kind theme, which will look at how design can play a role in shaping the world for the better,” stated Jennifer Roberts, CEO of Design Miami/. “As we continue to see the collectible design market grow, in both physical and digital spaces, 
we’re pleased to also welcome many new members to the Design Miami/ family - galleries, curios and partners - all of which are bringing thoughtful contributions to the fair.”

The 2021 edition of Design Miami/ aptly centers on the theme of Human Kind and explores the ways in which design can impact the world for the better in light of the global challenges currently facing humanity. Design Miami/ showcases the work of designers whose work explores what it means to be human in contemporary society, through an eclectic program of exhibitions and events exploring architecture, fashion, collectible objets d’art, film, furniture, and interior design.  All works exhibited at the fair will be available for purchase for a limited time at designmiami.com.

Wava Carpenter, the new curatorial director for the fair, noted, “The practice of design, at its heart, has always aimed to create a better future. But in recent years, as the global challenges that humanity faces have approached existential proportions, the future that designers envision increasingly demands a fundamental reorientation of what it means to be human in this world, calling on all of us to become better stewards of nature and of each other.”

Real Estate News All the Bay Harbor Islands Pre-construction Condo Projects You Need to Know About
The once sleepy bayfront town of Bay Harbor Islands, sandwiched between Miami Beach and mainland Miami, is undergoing a renaissance. This small neighborhood has recently come alive with a flurry of new construction activity, as old 1950s buildings, past their prime, are bought and cleared for new, boutique, waterfront condos. Clean, quiet, and pristine, this almost forgotten piece of Miami real estate had stood unnoticed for way too long, considering the building boom of the early 2000s skipped over this part of town.
