comunicato stampa

For its eighth edition, Design Miami/ Basel returns with an enhanced gallery selection, showing museum-quality works spanning five centuries of design, accompanied by a rich cultural programming of site-specific commissions, performances, awards and talks. All these will be presented in Design Miami/ Basel’s new Herzog & de Meuron designed home.

The June 2013 edition of Design Miami/ Basel will see a significant number of returning galleries and first-time exhibitors alike, all of which represent the world’s leading galleries specializing in collectible design. An international roster of nearly fifty historic and contemporary galleries from thirteen countries will be shown, alongside the fair’s cutting edge cultural programming, in Hall 1 Süd, part of the new permanent exhibition hall in Basel’s Messe. The fair will be held June 11-16, with a private Preview on Monday, June 10.

Design Miami/ Basel welcomes several first-time Design Gallery participants with various specialties including Galerie Pascal Cuisinier of Paris presenting French furniture from the 1950s; Thomas Fritsch – ARTRIUM of Paris with mid-century French ceramics; Southern Guild from South Africa with contemporary design, Steinitz of Paris specializing in antiques from the seventeenth to nineteenth century; and YMER &MALTA of Paris, featuring contemporary European designers “This year’s show will see several interesting juxtapositions - between historic and contemporary pieces, blue-chip work and emerging collectible design and large- scale interiors next to small-scale objects, ” says Marianne Goebl, Director of Design Miami/.

The gallery program for Design Miami/ Basel 2013 will once again feature strong thematic and conceptual threads including a renewed dialogue between historicand contemporary design. Antiques from the 17th and 18th centuries will be merged with cutting-edge contemporary work in a spectacular total environment created by Carpenters Workshop Gallery in collaboration with Steinitz. Several galleries will recreate historic interiors to contextualize the work of the twentieth century’s most significant designers including gallery Jacksons’ Alvar Aalto Sanatorium and a Pierre Paulin interior by Jousse Entreprise.

Other galleries have commissioned designers to explore specific materials, shapes and effects such as wood, stone, glass, geometric forms and colors to create new work especially for Design Miami/ Basel 2013, including Galerie BSL from Paris, Gallery Libby Sellers from London and R 20th Century from New York.

The fair will also offer work across a broad price range. There will be blue-chip, mid-century pieces of extraordinary provenance that were originally commissioned by cultural and social leaders of the twentieth century. Galerie Patrick Seguin will showcase “La Maison des Jours Meilleures” designed by Jean Prouvé at the initiative of Abbé Pierre in 1956 and Demisch Danant will present a monumental tapestry by Sheila Hicks commissioned by Eli Rothschild in 1969. At the other end of the spectrum, Design Miami/ Basel will feature a sophisticated selection of furniture, lighting, small-scale objects and jewelry from emerging designers for less than 5,000 euros.

The Design On/Site format showcases solo shows of contemporary design and reflects a diverse and international selection of designers and dealers collaborating in unexpected ways to bring new pieces to market. First time participants for June 2013’s Design On/Site include ProjectB of Milan presenting Philippe Malouin, Carwan Gallery of Beirut presenting India Mahdavi, NextLevel Galerie of Paris presenting Bina Baitel and two galleries from London specializing in artist jewelry with Louisa Guinness Gallery and Elisabetta Cipriani, presenting Anish Kapoor and Enrico Castellani, respectively.

Design Miami/ Basel will again partner with W Hotels to honor up-and-coming designers and studios that are expanding the field of design. The W Hotels Designer of the Future Award moves beyond pure product and furniture design to recognize technologically and conceptually vanguard pieces that work across multiple disciplines. Launched in 2006, the fair’s W Hotels Designers of the Future Award recognizes designers working in innovative ways—whether with new materials, new processes or unexpected approaches. This year’s award winners will be announced in April during Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan and their projects will be unveiled at Design Miami/ Basel this June.Design Miami/ Basel’s cultural program for 2013 will offer a diverse and lively forum for the exploration of ideas from the fields of design, architecture, fashion, art and technology. A full program of the fair’s cultural offering of Design Talks, Performances, Awards and Satellite Shows will be released in the coming months.

Audi has long been fulfilling its social responsibility on many levels – with the aim of making the future worth living for generations to come. The basis for Audi’s lasting success is therefore formed by environmental protection, the conservation of resources, international competitiveness and a forward-looking human resources policy. Within the context of “Vorsprung durch Technik”, which extends far beyond its products, the company is directing its activities toward a major goal– comprehensive CO2-neutral mobility and production.

The Audi Group delivered more than 1,455,100 cars of the Audi brand to customers in 2012. In 2012, the company posted revenue of €48.8 billion and an operating profit of €5.4 billion. Audi produces vehicles in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm (Germany), Győr (Hungary), Changchun (China) and Brussels (Belgium). The company is active in more than 100 markets worldwide. Audi currently employs more than 68,000 people worldwide, including around 50,000 in Germany. The brand with the four rings plans to invest a total of €11 billion by 2015 – mainly in new products and the expansion of production capacities – in order to sustain the company’s technological lead embodied in its “Vorsprung durch Technik” claim. Audi is currently expanding its site in Győr (Hungary) and will start production in Foshan (China) in late 2013 and in San José Chiapa (Mexico) in 2016.
