Design Miami

This high-end collectible design fair takes place in Miami Beach every December and has a sister event, Design Miami/Basel, which makes the trip to the Swiss city of Basel every June to coincide with the Art Basel fair.

From the Miami fair it was Zaha Hadid and Patrick Schumacker's clam-shaped dining pavilion that was most popular, closely followed by a hanging chair shaped like a killer whale by South African designer Porky Hefer.

From the Basel side of things, most popular was Richard Rogers' update of the 6x6 Demountable House by French Modernist architect and designer Jean Prouvé and presented in 2015 by Galerie Patrick Seguin.

This year the gallery returned to showcase a demountable office by the architect that was rescued from its fate as a swingers' club.
