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.”

Miami Condos You can Buy with Cryptocurrency
Buying Guide Miami Condos You can Buy with Cryptocurrency
Cryptocurrency holders are most welcome to buy real estate in Miami. This is the message that echoed across the globe for crypto holders this May, when a 9th-floor, ultra-luxury penthouse at Surfside’s Arte Residences closed using only cryptocurrency for a record price. The 5,067-square-foot, oceanfront residence sits in one of Miami’s most exclusive boutique buildings and features 360-degree water views. Closing at $22.5 million, the penthouse sale represents the most expensive residential crypto deal to date in the U.S. Considering the deal took only 10 days from start to end, it sets a new precedent in the world of real estate closings, demonstrating convenience and speed for both buyers and sellers. Now that cryptocurrency is becoming an increasingly popular investment vehicle and mode of currency, condo developers, sellers, and city officials are getting on board with the idea to allow cryptocurrency in real-world transactions - in Miami, at least.

It’s hotter. It’s more exclusive. It’s E11even Residences Beyond. Owing to a sales story that went from ‘soft launch’ to ‘sold out’ in a blaze, developers E11even Partners and the PMG Group are launching their second tower in Downtown Miami to complement one of Miami’s fastest-selling projects - E11even Hotel & Residences. Offering buyers a highly exclusive, “members-only” experience, ‘E11even Residences Beyond’ was launched the same day developers broke ground on ‘E11even Hotel & Residences’ this November. This second tower will be perched east of the first tower, on the same block, rising 65 stories with 461 ultra-luxury residences. Better still – the twin towers will be connected by a bridge, allowing ‘Beyond’ residents to walk over to enjoy amenities at the condo-hotel side, but not vice-versa. With 125 units already sold out (as of the time of this post), this new launch is garnering a great response. Future residents can expect to share amenities with ESPN co-host Sage...
