Design Miami and Art.sy: Partners in Design

It’s that time of year again, and we don’t mean mistletoe and merriment. We’re referring to Design Miami, the annual fair that gathers together a global network of influential galleries, curators, designers, collectors, and critics to celebrate collectible design of the past century. And 2012 is bound to be an exceptional event. What makes this year especially noteworthy is the collaboration between Design Miami and the online creative haven of contemporary art, known as Art.sy. The result is an interactive, up-close-and-personal experience of the design fair, available to anyone with an Internet connection.

Campana Banquete

Antibodies: The Campanas in Palm Springs

Making its only West Coast stop before shipping out to Mexico and Japan, Antibodies: The Works of Fernando and Humberto Campana, 1999-2009 is currently on view at the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Springs, California. The Campana Brothers have been at the fore of the design world not just for their playful forms and embrace of overlooked materials (stuffed animals, anyone?), but because the Brazilian duo has continued to surprise. From now until February 24 you've got as good a chance as any to see a decade of their best work under one roof in sunny Palm Springs. Click through for quick tour of what's put the Campanas squarely on the international furniture map.

Finn Juhl Centennial at Designmuseum Danmark

This fall we had the opportunity to pay a visit to Copenhagen, Denmark, where design buffs and locals alike are honoring what would have been the 100th birthday of one of the most influential (and yet somehow, still relatively under the radar) Danish designer, Finn Juhl. Designmuseum Danmark—worth a visit for its permanent collection alone, a trip through the Danish craft tradition—is exhibiting a hit list of Juhl's best work through the end of 2012 in a show called "Furniture for the Senses." What's especially incredible about Juhl's furniture is how ahead of its time it is: expressive, playful, colorful, plush, and not what you might expect from something designed in the early 1940s.

Dutch Profiles Gijs

Dutch Profiles: Gijs Bakker

Gijs Bakker needs little in the way of introduction—the Dutch furniture and jewelry designer founded the wildly influential collective Droog. But this great seven-minute video produced by Dutch Profiles serves as both a primer for the uninitiated and a smart look at how the master approaches his metier. Bakker talks about his take on jewelry design, his life as a teacher, and how young designers must resist the dictates of a uniform "Dutch Design," which he likens to "a kind of aesthetic, a kind of sauce that covers the product." Watch the video below, and if you need a second helping of Gijs, check out our interview from June, 2010.

resource furniture showroom

New from Resource Furniture

Right before Hurricane Sandy swept into New York and its environs, we paid a visit to the midtown showroom of Resource Furniture. Resource Furniture is a frequent exhibitor at Dwell on Design, and their roster of transformable furniture pieces—beds, desks, tables, you name it—makes small space living a cinch. Dwell got a tour of all the latest, plus a demonstration of one of the genre's most classic pieces: the original LGM system from Clei (in handy GIF form for your viewing pleasure).
