'Most diverse ever' Design Miami/Basel kicks off in Swiss city

Designers and gallerists from around the world have travelled to Basel, Switzerland for the 2017 edition of Design Miami/Basel trade fair.

Collectors, curators and critics will join them for the event, in which exhibitions of twentieth and twenty-first century furniture, lighting, jewellery and modern art are showcased alongside lectures and seminars on “the global language of design.”

This year 47 galleries representing 11 countries are participating from 13-18 June; unveiling new products and collections by designers and architects including Ettore Sottsass, André Sornay, Jean Royère, MAD Architects, Christ & Gantenbein, and American fashion designer Thom Browne.

The fair’s chief creative officer, Rodman Primack, said this year’s Design Miami/Basel will “be the most diverse ever”, with more countries than ever before represented – meaning “a broader range of styles and aesthetics” will be on show.

Styles under the spotlight this year include Art Deco, Art Nouveau, mid-century modern Scandinavian, postmodernism and Italian Glass design.

“We’re so pleased that with this edition, growth and expansion across markets is clear. It speaks to the growth of the fair and the vitality of the collectible design market that gallerists of such calibre and breadth are joining us in Basel,” said Jennifer Roberts, the fair’s CEO.

This is the eleventh edition of Design Miami/Basel, which is separated into two events in the two cities. The fair will travel to the US city from 6-10 December.
