5 Designers Derive Inspiration From Their Native Culture For Design Miami 2016

Dec 03, 2016


This year’s display at Design Miami has shown us how explicitly a country’s culture and tradition can be reflected by its artwork. We were astounded by what the designers had to offer! A glimpse through their work will leave you mind-blown too…

One of Patrick Parrish Gallery’s debuts is from Bec Brittain, a New York-based lighting designer whose work is also central to the native and city-inspired thread in this edition. Brittain looked to the ever-changing skyline of her native New York and referenced construction cranes in her group of five sculptural table lamps in brass, leather and glass.

Niek Pulles continues the idea in his presentation by Chamber named XXX, in which found objects collected from the streets of Amsterdam form two of his unique furniture pieces, striking in a cobalt blue.

Southern Guild presents Bronze Age, a Cape Town-based studio that has created the Num Num dining table in bronze and glass, inspired by the Num Num thorn tree, indigenous to South Africa, which is often used as a protective hedge around homes.

First time participant Mercado Moderno of Rio de Janeiro presents a solo exhibition on Brazilian designer Hugo França, whose natural wood forms are excavated from the fields of Brazil, carefully following the subterranean roots of indigenous trees and translate in poetic design pieces.
