Design Miami sees record attendance
Boh staff

With 37,900 collectors and visitors, Design Miami had its most successful fair yet. A total of 31 galleries exhibited at the 12th-annual fair—five of which joined the show for the first time this year.

“We reached a certain stride this edition that a lot of collectors and gallerists felt strongly,” says Rodman Primack, Design Miami’s chief creative officer. “The mix of historic and contemporary in the program and the quality of the design satellites and collaborations drove attendance and sales to a very exciting height.”

Cooper Hewitt, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Mint Museum added to their collections with a Verner Panton chair and a Christie van der Haak carpet from Galerie VIVID, as well as Snythesis lights by Tom Price from Victor Hunt Designart Dealer.

Design Miami also partnered with the United Nations on the launch of Building Legacy: Designing for Sustainability, which aims to build a new movement for green infrastructure.
