The first you must visit at Design Miami/ is Galerie Kreo, opened in 1999 in the contemporary art area Louise Weiss, which focuses on producing new pieces in collaboration with the world’s most relevant contemporary designers. Galerie Kreo first defines itself as a “laboratory-space“ dedicated to producing limited edition contemporary pieces created exclusively for the art gallery by luminaries such as Jaime Hayon and Pierre Charpin. Galerie Kreo gradually began to also focus on historic Italian and French lights hailing from the 1940s to the 1980s.

R & Company represents a distinguished group of historic and contemporary designers whose work is among the most innovative and finely crafted of their time. Initially founded as R in 1997 by Zesty Meyers and Evan Snyderman, this art gallery is distinguished by their combined goals of promoting a closer study, appreciation, and preservation of 20th and 21st-century design. A great choice during Design Miami/ 2019 because they are celebrating 20 years in business.
Carpenters Workshop Gallery with spaces in London, New York, Paris, and San Francisco is another art gallery present at Design Miami/ which produces and exhibits functional sculptures by international rising and already established artists and designers going outside their traditional territories of expression. The art gallery is actively involved in the research and production of the limited edition works exhibited. The choices are guided by the research of an emotional, artistic and historical relevance; a relevance that appears as evidence.
The Future Perfect was founded by David Alhadeff in 2003 and has become one of the world’s foremost contemporary design galleries. From its inception, the art gallery has been distinguished by its thoroughly creative and ebullient vision and strong curatorial focus, which showcases studio-created works alongside one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces.
Founded in 2007, this art gallery has played a vital role in the development of the contemporary design market and education taking a comprehensive approach to work that intersects the fields of design, craftsmanship, and art.
For Friedman Benda’s annual participation at Design Miami/, the art gallery will present a setting that reimagines long, lazy summer afternoons within the setting of a design fair (image 2) and an immersive installation by acclaimed artist Daniel Arsham (image 1) originally driven by his personal desire to construct the interior of his Long Island home. Arsham went on to develop and realize a body of work expanded into a fictionalized environment.
This art gallery was founded in 2018 by Benoît Wolfrom and Javier Peres. Blurring the lines between sculpture, visual art, furniture design and more, the gallery seeks to help shape the discussion between art and design and increase the presence of cutting edge design within the greater art world. At Design Miami/ you must go to this one too.
