Taking place at Messeplatz in Basel until Sept. 26, the fair homes in on humanism while delivering the latest in cutting-edge collectible design.
Marking its 15th year as an Art Basel staple, Design Miami/ brings together a selection of the world’s most distinguished galleries and designer presentations to the floor of Messeplatz. This year, the fair followed an environmental and empathetic approach at the hands of Aric Chen, the fair’s curatorial director, who selected “Human Nature” as the overarching theme. Check out our favorite moments from the fair below.
Ammonoid Gamma by Misha Kahn
One month after headlining the first-ever design NFT auction for a major house, Misha Kahn maintains his momentum with the red-hot Ammonoid Gamma (2020) that took home Design Miami/ Basel’s award for Best Contemporary Work. The plush piece is an unquestionable highlight within Friedman Benda’s imaginative booth, which conjures a setting layered with innuendo inspired by A Midsummer’s Night.
