Dezeen and MINI World Tour: in our next movie from Miami, show director Marianne Goebl discusses the trends that emerged from Design Miami 2013, including a renewed focus on female designers such as Charlotte Perriand and Maria Pergay.
"Design Miami's intention is to offer a journey through design history," Goebl explains in the movie. "At the same time we present a strong pillar of contemporary experimental work."
"For the first time we have a full-scale architectural structure [at the show], which Jean Prouvé designed in 1945," Goebl explains.
Prouvé was well-represented throughout the show, but so was the late architect's frequent collaborator Charlotte Perriand.
"It's also a year of seminal women designers," says Goebl. "We have a solo show on Charlotte Perriand, where you can discover an interior that she designed in Paris for the Borot family."
She continues: "We also have an interior dedicated to Maria Pergay's furniture made from stainless steel from the 1970s."
Other pieces of vintage furniture included Soviet art deco furniture presented by Moscow's Heritage International Art Gallery.
"For the first time an exhibitor from Russia is showing some kind of propaganda furniture that was designed in the 1930s to 1950s," Goebl explains.
Goebl then goes on to discuss the work of contemporary designers on show, claiming that there is a growing trend towards merging digital and analogue experiences.
Goebl claims that the collectible design market has now fully recovered after a few rocky years during the recent financial crash.
"The market had been affected by the crisis in 2008 and 2009," she says. "But since 2010 we've really registered a continued, healthy growth."
