A great event, a great design.

On the vintage side, the Demisch Danant gallery paid tribute to several personalities: first of all Jacques Dumont (armchairs above), French architect and decorator of the 45-60's, and whose architectural style is highly recognizable. Then, a series of designers who also marked their time as Etienne Fermigier (two left lamps)and Jean-Pierre Mignon.

The gallery's choice Friedman Benda was therefore decided on Ettore SottsassThis year's exhibition will celebrate the centenary of his birth. The pieces presented are rare products and illustrate the different essential currents that made the designer's career.



Galerie kreo, United Kingdom


DesignMiami/ Basel 2017, Galerie Kreo, François Bauchet, Azo Table
DesignMiami/ Basel 2017, Galerie Kreo, Jaime Hayon, Skating Daybed

The Galerie kreo has a history of exposing designers at the heart of trends. This year, we are particularly fond of the Azo Table by François Bauchetfor its massive and sculptural style, with a certain boldness in colour and material (composite of sand, concrete and resin). As well as on the amazing Ice-Skating Bed by Jaime HayonThe designer always operates between innovation and humour with accuracy.



 Galerie Maria Wettergren, France


DesignMiami/ Basel 2017, Galerie Maria Wettergren, Large Growth Table
DesignMiami/ Basel 2017, Galerie Maria Wettergren, High Grid chair, Boris Berlin

At Maria WettergrenMovement is in the spotlight. Between the Large Growth table by Mathias Bengtsson and High Grid chair by Boris BerlinIt is as if the inert came to life. We see them moving and swaying behind our backs... Isn't suggestion better than reality?



Philippe Gravier Gallery, France 


DesignMiami/ Basel 2017, Galerie Philippe Gravier, Sou Fujimoto, Forest of Books

The most interesting pieces in the collection Philippe Gravier are without any doubts these wired towers called Forest of Booksdesigned in 2016 by the designer Sou Fujimoto. An unexpected way to store your precious books by giving greatness and perspective to your spaces.



ALL GalleryUSA/China


DesignMiami/ Basel 2017, ALL Gallery, Mad Martian

The ALL Gallery is specialised in exhibiting the most experimental pieces. Moreover, in China, ALL was the first gallery in 2013 to exhibit only limited edition furniture and objects. On the occasion of DesignMiami/ Basel 2017the gallery asked the architect Ma Yansong to create a very special collection... MAD Martian.



 FUMI Gallery, United Kingdom


DesignMiami/ Basel 2017, Galerie Fumi, the Fonteyn chair, Brooksbank & Collins
DesignMiami/ Basel 2017, Galerie Fumi, the Fonteyn chair, Brooksbank & Collins
DesignMiami/ Basel 2017, FUMI gallery, Blankenau Side table, Lukas Wegwerth

The gallery presented one of the most beautiful stands on the show, and the Fonteyn Chair by Brooksbank & Collins is a product that will not be forgotten in a hurry. Interlocking green marble and oak veneer, this massive but simple object is likely to find itself soon embroiled in the most fashionable projects... And with the Blankenau Side Table by Lukas WegwerthThe fact that the stability of a table is finally being questioned is greatly appreciated.



Maniera, Belgium


DesignMiami/ Basel 2017, Maniera, Brick Study III, Studio Mumbaï/Bijoy Jain Bench

The gallery Maniera has exhibited many objects among which was the bench Brick Study III, by Mumbaï Studio. Halfway between the search for a new design and the know-how of the past, this unique furniture has managed to stand out. Maniera is based on the principle of collaborating with artists and architects on limited edition pieces, in search of new trends but also of authenticity.



 Sarah Myerscough Gallery, United Kingdom


DesignMiami/ Basel 2017, Sarah Myerscough, Josepgh Walsh, Enigmatum Desk IV

Finally, we will of course remember theEnigmatum Desk by Joseph Walsh proposed by the Sarah Myerscough Gallery. For this series (which also includes a chair and a wall shelf), the artist has broken down the wood into several layers and then assembled them to create an organic form, a unique partnership between nature and man.

This installation honours the work of the architect Carlo MollinoThe exhibition presents a work that is part performance, part architecture, part cinema and part photography. Featuring the famous armchairs designed for theRAI Auditorium, in Turin in 1952This installation raises the question of seeing and being seen, as it leads us in turn to be spectators and then observers...



Supergufram presents Studio Job


DesignMiami/ Basel 2017, Supergufram presents Studio Job

On the occasion of DesignMiami/ Basel 2017, SuperguframAs a tool for designers, it offered the possibility to Studio Job to go far in experimenting with polyurethane foam. It is between industrial design and art that the duo has conceived a series of limited edition pieces, including the magnificent lunar wardrobe that revisits their already well-known wardrobe, Globe.
