Design Miami 2018 ended last weekend and we decided to check out some of the highlights of the event when it comes to design, craftsmanship and furniture. Here are some highlights

Louis Vuitton

Of course, the ever-expanding collection of the Objects Nomades by Louis Vuitton generated some buzz as it does every year. Among the set of new objects that were at this exposition was the “Anemona” table by Atelier Biagetti, the ‘Ribbon Dance’ chair by Andre Fu, or even the “Cocoon swing chair” by the Campana Brothers.

This collection even included a miniature set of decorative objects (Les Petite Nomades) that showed that the brand’s still got it when it comes to challenging the possibilities in design. Among some of the contributing names for this set are Maarten Baas, Damien Langlois-Meurinne, Patricia Urquiola, Marcel Wanders, Tokujin Yos, and Gwenaël Nicolas.

This booth definitely had a bizarre look to it. On one hand, there were the bizarre and somehow sinister lamps, tables and cabinets by Brecht Gander (including the True Belly of the Beast Cabinet, the Junk Band Series Tables and the Yo! Burri Lamp).

On the other, you could be looking at beautiful pieces such as Marc Fish’s ethereal desk, Jean-Luc Le Mounier’s papillon cabinet or even Markus Haase’s Bronze, Walnut and Limestone Dining Table. When it came to other decorative pieces we could see the talent of Sophie Coryndon was well put into practice.

The Future Perfect

The Future Perfect featured some illustrative aluminum works from Chris Wolston, as well as some colorful looking furniture pieces. Aside from the ceramic elements from the hands of  Eric Roinestad, and the glassworks by John Hogan, there were tabletops which were made from chunks of rock and semiprecious stone (by Chen Chen and Kai Williams).

Definitely, the highlight of this part of the exposition were Chris Wolston’s tropical, sand-cast metal foliage and also Reinaldo Sanguino’s hand-painted ceramic stools that alluded to the beach-like environment that defines Miami.

Etage Projects

Etage Projects presented a group exhibition from with three collaboration designs and individual works from FOS, Sabine Marcelis, and Guillermo Santoma. Among the individual works of these designers are wall lamps, vases, tables, a mirror and an aluminum screen.

As for the collaboration designs, they are the results of rotating three projects among different designers. Sabine Marcelis sent Guillermo Santoma, some blocks of resin and then he made them into a chandelier. Santoma sent two foam sculptures to Thomas Poulsen (FOS) that were cut up forming a small side table and a stool. Lastly, Poulsen sent Marcelis a ceramic shell which ended up resulting in a striking sconce.

Salon 94 Design

The booth for Salon 94 was presented in a way that sort of reminded people of a warehouse. It featured works by names such as Dozie Kanu, Gaetano Pesce, Kwangho Lee, Max Lamb, Thomas Barger, and Tom Sachs.

Les Ateliers Courbet

This project comes from the mind of Melanie Courbet, the descendant of  19th-century painter Gustave Courbet. The presentation of the inaugural collection, titled The Masters Editions, presented pieces that showed that Europe’s ongoing craftsmanship is well and alive by the hands of contemporary designers.
