Design at Large/
This year's Design at Large anchored the fair’s entrance with monumental works that go beyond the traditional gallery booth, with an emphasis on nature and outdoor living curated by Martina Mondadori Sartogo, invited guests to interact and explore unique ways of living with design. The program featured installations by Alexandra Kehayoglou, Tom Price, Kiki van Eijk, Ron Arad, Jean Prouvé, Kengo Kuma, Masatoshi Izumi & Koichi Hara, Enzo Enea and DIMORESTUDIO. The exhibition provided a perfect introduction to the Gallery Program through its mix of contemporary and modern works from across the globe. Christian Larsen, Associate Curator at The Metropolitan Museum of Art shared: "Allusions to nature were a strong trend in the 2016 edition of Design Miami/ Basel. Whether understood as a generative force for organic forms, or as a precious endangered resource, nature was a font of inspiration for many of the featured designers. Their products--whether the sensuous rounded wood of Scandinavian and Brazilian design, or the technological avant-garde of 3D printing, or handcrafted intricacies--demonstrate how design heightens our appreciation and awareness of our environment."

Swarovski Designers of the Future Award/
This year’s Swarovski Designers of the Future Award was presented to a group of emerging new talents tasked with the challenge of designing for future living and betterment in a holistic, adaptable and personal way. German-Icelandic duo Studio Brynjar & Veronika created unexpected moments of beauty using natural light almost in conversation with crystal; sound artist Yuri Suzuki presented a crystal ‘orchestra’ installation that explored sound through crystal while creating interesting visual and light effects; while glass artist Anjali Srinivasan offered an installation in which visitors were invited to interact with an elegant glass and crystal wave made up of touch crystals, standard crystals, Srinivasan’s own blown glass and sensor LED connectors.

Design Talks/
Highlights of the 2016 Design Talks program included Andreas Ruby discussing how architecture is viewed and experienced beyond the walls of a traditional museum with SO-IL's Florian Idenburg, and Berlin-based Kuehn Malvezzi; Basel’s own Christ & Gantenbein talking about contemporary architecture in dialogue with historic structures in a conversation with Wallpaper* editor in chief Tony Chambers; and designer Andrea Trimarchi of Formafantasma, rug maker Alexandra Kehayoglou and jewelry designer David Bielander in a conversation moderated by Christian Larsen, Associate Curator Of Modern and Decorative Arts at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Satellites/
Design works by Zaha Hadid have been a strong presence at the fair over the past decade. To mark the architect’s passing earlier this year, Design Miami/ Basel honored the groundbreaking architect and designer with a special presentation by Zaha Hadid Architects showcasing her latest innovative work in the field. Originally planned as a Curio designed by Hadid herself, her untimely passing spurred her eponymous architecture firm to expand the concept in honor of her memory.

For the first time, the fair played host to collectible vintage cars. Hess Classic showcased masterpieces of Italian automotive innovation from the 1950s to the 70s from the company's private collection. A non-commercial exhibition, the display elicited interest and positive responses from visitors to Design Miami/ Basel 2016.

Guest curator of this year’s Design at Large program Martina Mondadori Sartogo – founder and editor in chief of Cabana Magazine – collaborated on Design Miami/ Basel’s eclectic 2016 graphic identity, which was characterized by diverse prints, geometric shapes and bright, bold fruit and floral graphics that are a main feature of Cabana magazine.

More food-for-thought came courtesy of Berlin bookshop do you read me?! who returned to Design Miami/ Basel with a pop-up packed with all that is most beautiful in print.
