Event: Design MiamiPosted: December 1, 2011
The art world descends on Miami this week for a variety of art fairs and events anchored by the mammoth and super-glam Art Basel: Miami Beach.
There are numerous additional art fairs and cultural events happening around the city simultaneously including Design Miami. Now in its sixth year, the fair has become one of the trendiest venues for selling (super) high-end contemporary and 20th century design.
This year David Adjaye was awarded the designer of the year and was commissioned to construct a site-specific work for the show grounds. Below is a selection of Adjaye’s creations, celebrity visitors…and, of course, great design being exhibited.

Dear Readers: Do not adjust your computer screens. Troy is taking over White Cabana this week and, as you can see, he’s really shaken things up around here! Enjoy. – Jordana
