Design Miami/Basel 2013 Highlights
Basel Switzerland experienced an exciting five days of design with the eighth edition of Design Basel. From June 11-16, 2013 nearly fifty galleries from fourteen different countries presented museum quality work from the last five centuries of design.
This year Basel was housed in the newly completed Herzog & de Meuron designed metal latticed building. The exciting architecture of the building certainly reflected the revolutionary work found inside.
Southern Guild/ South Africa
Since 2008, the Johannesburg-based gallery has paved the way for South African designers to gain the recognition their unique work deserve. Showcasing the best of South Africa’s designers, Southern Guild has helped cultivate the careers of countless designers and has put South Africa in a category of itself.
Not only are they pushing South African designers to enter a global design discourse, they are also rallying for the world to recognize the uniqueness and technical virtuosity of the country’s most cutting-edge furniture and object designers. They made their first Design Miami/Basel appearance this year.
