Until December 4, world-leading international galleries and luxury brands join Design Miami 2022. The fair takes place in Pride Park, opposite the Miami Beach Convention Center. Check the five macro-trends tuning with this year’s overarching theme: The Golden Age: Rooted in the Past.
Responding to The Golden Age theme, many galleries celebrate the diverse histories of craft and tradition that continue to shape our shared future. Cape Town gallery Southern Guild returns to Design Miami 2022 with a bold exhibition of furniture and functional sculpture, elevating every day towards the divine. Guided by a deep spiritual connection to his Xhosa ancestors, Andile Dyalvane presents the iNgqweji ceramic series inspired by nests of sociable weaver birds.
For Jason Jacques Gallery, Paris, Finnish artist Kim Simonsson reimagined his famed Moss People as five-meter-tall monumental Moss Giants. In Finnish folklore, Moss people are mythological wanderers from the Nordic forests, weaving a narrative that oscillates between the real world and the supernatural.
New York gallery Atelier Courbet presents sculptural wall pieces by French designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance with Maison Intègre that pay homage to the expressive nature of the West African ritual mask present. Each sconce is hand molded, cast from recycled bronze, and finished with a black patina.
