Design Miami/ has announced the dates and location of its newest edition, Design Miami/ Los Angeles. Joining the fair’s roster of global events in Basel, Paris, and Miami Beach, the inaugural West Coast fair will take place May 16th through 20th 2024, with Preview Days, by invitation only, on May 16th and 17th. Design Miami/ Los Angeles will be situated within a private Holmby Hills estate designed by late architect Paul Williams. Design Miami/ will mark its venture to Los Angeles with a dynamic program of international design galleries, collaborations, and special projects spanning design, fashion and entertainment. 

​Design Miami/ welcomes the appointment of Henrik Purienne as Global Creative Director for the 2024 fair program. As a visual artist and founder of Mirage Magazine, Purienne will provide art direction and the visual expression of Design Miami/ across fairs in Los Angeles, Basel, Paris and Miami Beach this year. Alongside Purienne, collectible design market advisor and curator Ashlee Harrison has been announced as Curatorial Director of the Los Angeles edition. Harrison will curate a thoughtful presentation of international collectible design galleries with hand-selected and site-specific exhibitions of historic and contemporary furniture, lighting and objets d’art, positioned throughout the 3-acre estate. Harrison comes to the fair with nearly two decades of experience working within arts and culture; most recently as the former Director of the Americas for Carpenters Workshop Gallery, where she launched the US operations in 2014 and oversaw the development of the business for the decade thereafter.

​Design Miami’s West Coast debut comes at a time of great momentum for the fair. The announcement of Design Miami/ Los Angeles arrives on the heels of a successful inaugural Paris edition this past October 2023 and the company’s recent acquisition by LA-based, curated marketplace, Basic.Space.
