The eye-catching entrance pavilion to Design Miami consisted of inflated tubes bundled together to resemble a topographical landscape in suspension. The work, called “Drift,” is from New York-based Snarkitecture and inflatable structure manufacturer Inflate. Instead of a familiar white vinyl tent, the tubes sit at various heights and form mountains and caverns above the entrance courtyard. A seating installation, called “Bend,” includes a series of upholstered foam benches that twist and drape over one another.
Design Miami, now in its eighth edition, showcases furniture, lighting and objets d’art. The show ends Sunday.
