The worlds most pivotal global forum on design, Design Miami/ in Basel begins this June 12-17, bringing together designers, gallerists, collectors and editors from the dynamic industry. As Media Partner for our 6th year, we continue to highlight key works of today.

At the exceptional Herzog & de Meuron-designed Messe Basel New Hall, another year of innovative and revisited classic design is anticipated. From the late Wendell Castle‘s Horseshoe desk at Converso, to Australian designer Trent Jansen (Broached Commissions) Pankalangu Credenza. Stand-outs include Betil Dagdelen‘s Alloy Bench (2016) at Cristina Grajales Gallery,

Also highly anticipated; Swarovski unveil their ‘Designers Of The Future’ award winners; with StudyoOPortable (Bernadette Deddens & Tetsuo Mukai), Yosuke Ushigome (of Takram) and Frank Kolman responding to a brief focussed on smart living, with resulting design pieces exploring crystal technologies, psycho activation techniques, touch crystal and energy crystal.
