Debut and Commissioned Works from Contemporary Artists and Designers/
For the fourth year running, Friedman Benda presents a solo exhibition at Design Miami/ Basel, this time by the celebrated Japanese design firm nendo, founded in 2002 by Oki Sato, which debuts Watercolour Collection, an 18-piece metal furniture collection inspired by the effects of watercolor paint on a paper surface. Elisabetta Cipriani features a wall installation of a debut line of necklaces by Ania Guillaume, which are as much artworks as they are wearable. Olivier van Herpt, a young designer from Holland, developed 3-D printed porcelain vases inspired by traditional Delftware exclusively for debut at Galerie VIVID. Kwangho Lee shows The Shape of a River Series for the first time at Salon 94 Design, a series that exposes simple forms through his materials: joined industrial copper sheets under tremendous heat. After three years of exhibiting at Design Miami/, The Future Perfect debuts at Design Miami/ Basel with brand new works from Chris Wolston and John Hogan––Wolston’s aluminum wall installation makes a distinct statement, while Hogan’s latest collection of glass furniture showcases the artist’s ability to transform the material. At MANIERA, architect Anne Holtrop debuts his Barbar tables, made entirely of Italian silver travertine. Todd Merrill shows new work by John Procario made specifically for Design Miami/ Basel––furniture and sculptural lighting composed of micro-laminated, cold-pressed bent wood.

Trends in Textiles/
Galleries offer a rich and diverse selection of textile works, including many incorporating innovative materials and mixing traditional techniques with contemporary influences. At Hostler Burrows, artist Louise Hederström’s oversize installation––part wall hanging, part rug––was designed in collaboration with Kasthall and investigates both the naiveté and creativity of adolescence. R & Company has on view two carpets from Dana Barnes’s Woven Forms series, in which she manipulates the surfaces of ca. 1900 Persian carpets with a unique felting technique, while Demisch Danant shows work by iconic textile artist Sheila Hicks. Cristina Grajales Gallery showcases Betil Dagdelen’s bench and ottoman set that combines traditional weaving techniques with innovative materials and improvisational patterning. At Lebreton, sculptor and fiber artist Magdalena Abakanowicz’s 1964 work in woven sisal and horsehair is featured. Maria Wettergren shows Astrid Krogh’s Layers of Ambiguity, 200 meters of handwoven computer cables stripped of their insulated coating, revealing layers of highly reflective silver and copper wires.

Hidden Gems: Jewelry on View/
Both contemporary commissioned works and hidden gems newly on the market make up the jewelry offerings this year. Galleria Antonella Villanova features Daniela Boieri’s Lines of Life, made using the Japanese shibuichi technique. Twentieth-century jewelry gallery Siegelson’s impressive pieces include an iconic 1937 amethyst starfish brooch by Juliette Moutard for Jeanne Boivin––each arm is articulated so that the brooch subtly reproduces the crawling motion of a living starfish when worn.

Ornamentum presents a selection of new works created by Karl Fritsch specifically for Design Miami/ Basel that combine precious and ordinary materials with ease; gold, diamonds, and rubies find themselves juxtaposed with steel nails or set to look like eyes in a face with a protruding tongue.

Lit Up: Chandeliers from 1900 to Today/
Galerie Régis Mathieu is known for its exceptional collection of chandeliers and doesn’t disappoint with a ca. 1900 brass chandelier equipped with an inverted gas system by Gustave Serrurier-Bovy that once lit the Hourtès Provençal farmhouse of Jean Laffont, a celebrated collector of neo-Gothic and 1900s art. Studio BBPR’s Unique Ceiling Lamp Mod 2045 was originally installed in Milan’s famous Sforza Castle in 1963 and is on view at Gate 5. Galerie kreo features the largest Gio Ponti ceiling light ever produced, a brass and frosted blown glass chandelier from ca. 1965, which will be loaned to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris for a major––and first ever in Europe––Ponti retrospective in October. Kengo Kuma’s 2017 large-scale chandelier on view at Galerie Philippe Gravier is made from stainless steel, traditional Japanese shoji paper, and LED lighting.

Classic and Contemporary Forms in Glass and Ceramics/
With a profusion of ceramic and glass works increasingly on view in museums, these gallery presentations offer up the mediums’ contemporary trends and classic forms for the discerning collector. An impressive 1926–36 porcelain Art Deco vase at Robert Zehil Gallery bears the decoration Artist Flavie Audi collaborated with the jewelry designer Noor Fares on the wearable project Superlunary, which fuses Flavie’s symbiosis of the synthetic and the natural with Noor’s minimal aesthetic, creating pieces in hand-carved stone inlaid with artificial and natural gems, synthetic resin that swallows natural stones, and silver with resin molded by a 3-D printer.
