New York designer Harry Allen presents Portrait Vessel. Each sculpture is made from a 3-D scan of a person’s face and neck and is then printed in custom ceramic, 9-carat gold, or platinum. This is the designer’s perspective on both classical busts and present-day selfies.
Inspired by sustainability and folk art, Fernando Laposse worked with fiber artist Angela Damman and artisans from Sacabah, Yucatán, to create an immersive world that pays homage to local materials found in Mexico, such as the cochineal insect (which produces vibrant red dye), and agave fibers.
Raleigh Gardens from the Raleigh Hotel was designed by architect Peter Marino and landscape architect Raymond Jungles. It shares an Art Deco concept, showcasing more than 40 surreal sculptures by Claude Lalanne and François-Xavier Lalanne, the late French artist couple simply known to the art world as Les Lalanne.
Nata Janberidze and Keti Toloraia of Rooms will be presenting at Design Miami for the first time with an exhibition inspired by their childhood.
