Historical Meets Contemporary at Design Miami/ 2018, Dec 5-9

Design Miami/ is the go-to art fair for collecting, exhibiting, discussing and creating collectible design. 2018 will be the fifth edition of its popular Curio program from December 5 – 9, alongside the mainstay of the fair, the Galleries section.

This year Curio program will present 11 new presentations that are inspired by Renaissance era cabinets of curiosities. Curio exhibitions are small-scale, immersive installations presented by brands, galleries, and designers alongside the gallery program of the fair. 

The fair is a platform for experimentation and innovation — spanning the 20th and 21st centuries. It presents installations of scientific and technological research alongside handcraft and creative production. 

Highlights for 2018 include traditional design methodologies, tools, and materials. Designers innovative with exciting forms informed by their predecessors — exploring historical materials and techniques from Argentina, Korea, Transylvania, and more.

“A platform for experimentation and innovation, the Curio program has been the stage for launching pioneering new projects, such as MIT’s Self-Assembly Lab and Tom Sachs’s first international furniture pieces, both presented at Design Miami/ 2017. In 2016, Virgil Abloh presented the “Curio – A Series of Off-White,” a special furniture commission by the designer,” stated the fair.

“We are thrilled with the far-reaching international scope of this year’s Curio program and with the projects’ exposure of new talents at the fair, combining conceptual practices with traditional craftsmanship,” said Jennifer Roberts, CEO, Design Miami/.
