Miami, one of the major centers in US and a leader in finance, commerce, culture, media, entertainment, the arts, and international trade will be hosting the first edition of the highly regarded Paris-based interiors trade show, May 12-15, 2015, the Maison & Objet Americas.
Maison & Objet Miami sold out quickly, which is outstanding considering the number of U.S.-based design events taking place that same month, including NYCxDESIGN (May 8-19), Collective (May 13-17) and ICFF (May 16-19).
“The design scene in Miami is moving in very interesting ways with a mix of art, culture and architecture, said Philippe Brocart, in a statement released by the fair. The managing director of SAFI, which owns and operates M&O, said the city was chosen for its convenient geographic location and its “dynamic environment” in which art deco architecture coexists with major modern projects. “We also want to bring a new approach compared to our Paris and Singapore events by presenting a curated offer balancing European brands with U.S. and Latin American designers.”
“Miami is definitely showing its muscle as a magnet not only for art but also all aspects of design”, says Teresa Laughlin, a spokesperson for the event.
