Gallery/ On display now at @friedman_benda: @ronaradstudio : Fishes & Crows, 1985-1994 featuring pieces by the designer that have not been on view in decades that track Arad’s progression in approach, from deliberate crudeness to increasing sophistication. Also on display is @jonathan_trayte first US solo exhibition, Fruiting Habits in which Trayte assembles a surreal and psychologically provocative landscape, with living, sleeping and eating quarters. The pieces form a quirky and characterful family of misfits.
@ummmsmile, Artist and designer shares one of her favorite items from Design Miami/ Basel 2018: seen at @randcompanynyc, Dining table from 1970 by José Zanine Caldas. "I’m still grappling with the fact that José Zanine Caldas Dining table is not the scale of an actual dining table, since it would make for a very chic slop dinner party. But slop or not, the simplicity of this form is compelling."
@dara_huang, Architect, designer, and Founder, @dhliberty, shares one of her favorite items from Design Miami/ Basel 2018: seen at @galerievivid, Delft Blue vases by @oliviervanherpt that debuted at the fair. "These are really cool vases and of course they are 3-D printed––that is the only way to get the tiled, gradient precision in the porcelain as well as the overall organic form. The layers of the diamond pattern with the motion of the blurred, blue lines gives you this feeling that the vases are moving. There are many intricate layers that result in what looks like a simple and flawlessly designed vessel."
Libby Sellers, Design consultant, curator and writer, shares one of her favorite items from Design Miami/ Basel 2018: seen at @maniera_brussels, Why Should We Ask for Humanity in the Product? created this year by Koenraad Dedobbeleer. "MANIERA consistently presents the most intellectually inspiring and rigorously executed designs. Koenraad Dedobbeleer’s lamp is no different. Inspired by the work of early twentieth-century architect and designer Josef Frank, the lamp is both sculpture and object. By displacing the lampshade’s Art Deco origins within a contemporary pedestal, Dedobbeleer sharpens our awareness of the tangled relationships among art, design, context, and history. Impressive stuff."
@indiamahdavi, Architect and Designer, shares one of her favorite items from Design Miami/ Basel 2018: seen at @nilufargallery, Two armchairs model 801 from 1961 by Jorge Zalszupin. "I really like Jorge Zalszupin's work––it is less known than other Brazilian designers such as Sergio Rodrigues or Joaquim Tenreiro. Nina Yashar has been a fantastic ambassador for Brazilian design after showing Lina Bo Bardi at Nilufar Depot for design week in Milan."
@deborahberke, Founder, @deborahberkepartners, and Dean, @yalearchitecture, shares one of her favorite items from Design Miami/ Basel 2018: seen at @galeriepatrickseguin, the Lift-up table with drawers from 1943 by Jean Prouvé. "There’s something so seductive about Jean Prouvé," says. "This table has such an elegant, slender profile. And because it is hung from the wall, it creates a flexible way to define the space of a room."
Gallery/ @galleriacaterinatognon presents The Richards, a duo show by Richard Marquis & Richard Meitner, two of the most important Masters of the Studio Glass Movement. The two artists are internationally known as ironic, colorful, cheerful and highly original as well as visually and technically ahead of their times. Their practices are regarded as a crucial in the development of glass sculpture as a critically recognized art form.
