Design Miami 2009 has a wide selection of galleries, focusing on a variety of designers. I was thrilled to see the mix of iconic pieces, including the Hand Chairs from Pedro Friedeberg and the Drawer Chest from Tejo Remy ....... mixed with the work of newer designers, such as Julien Carretero and Kwangho Lee. Included within this range of design is a wide selection of process, technique, materials and silhouette. All of the work is unique, exciting and interesting ...... a delicious feast for the "accessorator's" eye!!!!!!!!!!!


Design Miami #1 .... Maquette of Droog House !!!!!

I'm spending this week in Miami at the Miami/Basel Art Fair and Design Miami ...... as well as all of the other satellite fairs in town .......... So, be ready for fabulous "accessorations," starting tomorrow!!!!


Droog will present its first house at Design Miami. Commissioned by Amsterdam housing association Ymere and designed by Tokyo-based Atelier Bow Wow, an understated façade conceals an extraordinary interior furnished with Droog products. Imagined for a single, a contemporary family or as a VIP guesthouse, the one-of-a-kind layout is essentially a seamless flow of spaces, each with its own functionality merging with circulation space. Private rooms such as the master and optional guest bed, the bath, the balcony and a sound-proof refuse are amply separated by shared space, creating a unique combination of contact and independence, spaciousness and intimacy.


Eminent Droog products will animate an unassuming interior of light wooden floors and white walls. The house will feature the classic 1991 Ragchair and Milk bottle lamp by Tejo Remy, the Heat wave radiator by Joris Laarman and the Tile kitchen by Arnout Visser, Erik Jan Kwakkel, and Peter van der Jagt."

Dutch designer Lotty Lindeman's limited edition installation, "Tasenkast," is being launched by Gallerie Priveekollektie next week at Design Miami. Blurring the line between practical design and furniture, these "suitcases" can be used in their traditional role for travel or with the addition of interior shelves, they can be collected on the wall as a series of cabinets or shelving units. The cases are made of quilted padded fabric, that is wrapped around two wooden sides. The wall installation is hung from a wooden bar using fabric straps with fastenings that match those on the bag.


"Interiors nowadays are presented like still, but in fact there is a lot of mobility of objects, moving around by human needs. Tassenkast plays on the edge of what we perceive as a fashion item and what we perceive as an interior product." Lotty Lindeman


This unique concept for a "moveable" shelving system is so captivating   .... I would love to have it as a "sculpture" on my wall!!!
