Droog and Barry Friedman's Smart Deco

Design Miami update: We've finally got around to posting the images of Droog Design and Barry Friedman Ltd's "Smart Deco: A Period Room of the 21st Century" show.

The show brings together new commissioned work from ten of Europe's leading designers and was one of the highlights of Design Miami earlier this month.


Smart Deco consisted of a room-set made up of pieces from designers including Marcel Wanders, Frank Tjepkema (Tjep) and Atelier van Lieshout (floorplan above - although it didn't look much like this in reality as the space was more of a corridor than a room).
