ESIGN MIAMI/ 2016 - ADDITIONAL PROGRAMMING
National real estate brokerage Douglas Elliman will present this year’s Design Talks program in a new theater space designed by architects from real estate development firm, DDG, supported by the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University (ASU). Through this powerful series of Talks, Douglas Elliman continues to support the evolution of a global conversation surrounding the convergence of art, design, culinary arts and real estate. Participants will include Jean Nouvel, Paul Goldberger, Piero Lissoni, Yvette Mattern, and SHoP Architects.
DDG conceives of the Talks Theater as a cross between a "conversation pit" and an ancient Greek amphitheater. Its simple form is meant to symbolize the democracy of a conversation, one that is inclusive of both speakers and audience, and fosters a shared experience. The Design Talks Theater will host the very first series of Building Legacy talks, a new platform being launched at Design Miami/ with the United Nations.
United Nations/ Building Legacy
Design Miami/ partners with the United Nations on the launch of Building Legacy: Designing for Sustainability. The new platform aims to build momentum and a new movement for green infrastructure - one that will be designed and constructed in a manner that protects people and the planet for future generations.
The platform will emphasize building and producing for people’s sustainable futures and will bring together designers, architects, developers and producers to promote concrete solutions. Working to support the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Building Legacy is a platform for the infrastructure, architecture and design communities. The program kicks off with the Building Legacy Opening Night Preview, by invitation only, and features four Building Legacy Talks at the fair.
Design Miami/ Market
Now in its second year, Design Miami/ Market brings a new kind of product to the fair, with a curated selection of design-driven retail offering custom and limited-edition objects, ornaments, accessories. Returning to the Market for Design Miami/ 2016, ARTBOOK has curated a selection of sophisticated art and design books, catalogues raisonnОs and collector’s editions from around the world. Joining them will be Maison Kitsuné, the French fashion brand behind a limited edition mini-capsule collection drawing inspiration from the archives of John Alcorn, the late American illustrator whose iconic illustrations also create this year’s fair identity. The collection will also be available at The Webster and at Maison Kitsuné online and in stores in Hong Kong, Paris, Tokyo and New York City. Bernardaud brings a collaboration with Jeff Koons to the program with Balloon Dog, an iconic work within the highly acclaimed Celebration series.
