Design Miami/ 2009 Highlights

By danielle


The fifth anniversary edition of Design Miami/ proved to be once again a great success with an overall increase in visitors and sales. Visitors rose by 4.5% from last year with a record of 23,000 attendees. Sales were continuously strong throughout the event, with a high point including the MOSS Gallery’s sale of three of Maarten Baas‘ Grandfather clocks priced at $100,000 a piece. Named Designer of the Year, Maarten Baas’ presented series of older works in his exhibition along with some more newly created pieces in conjunction with vignettes of his inspirations and live actors performing his ‘Real Time Clock’. With the 2009 edition of Design Miami/ just behind us, the extensive range of performances, exhibitions, and installations illustrate that this was its most creative and extensive program yet. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for Design Miami/ 2010!
