Design Miami/ Basel 2017

Basel Fair

13 June – 18 June 2017

The first of this year’s Design Miami fairs opens on 13 June 2017 in Basel. For one week, short series and individual pieces from the world of art and design will be presented at the fair. Since 2005, Design Miami has been held twice a year alongside the international art fair Art Basel. The fairs are held alternately in Miami and Basel, and provide a global forum for design culture and trade in the two cities.

Every year, collectors, designers, artists and gallerists from all over the world gather in Basel to focus on design in the 20th and 21st centuries through presentations, exhibitions, panel discussions and lectures.

Design objects, collectors’ items and art objects from a total of forty-seven galleries in eleven different countries are on view. The theoretical framework programme provides insights into the visions of different designers and design institutions. Design Miami is now considered one of the leading events for collectible and contemporary design thanks to the impressive range and scope of its exhibitions and programmes. In addition to collectors having the opportunity to discuss and purchase exhibits, visitors can also visit exhibitions of designers such as Ettore Sottsass, André Sornay and the Chinese architectural firm MAD.
