GALERIE GMURZYNSKA x GERMANO CELANT and Karl Lagerfeld
For its 50th anniversary the Switzerland’s celebrated art gallery “Galerie Gmurzynska” brought someone very special on board – and to Miami Beach! Renowned Italian curator Germano Celant created an impressive booth for the gallery for their exhibition space at Art Basel Miami Beach 2015. In a modern-day Salon style the space shows masterworks from avant-garde to modern and contemporary art. Another extraordinary gift for the eye was fashion icon and Gmurzynska’s long-year collaboration partner Karl Lagerfeld’s photographic oeuvre.
NETJETS x SNARKITECTURE
For the opening of Art Basel Miami Beach, on December 2nd, the successful private aviation firm and official Art Basel partner, NetJets officially unveiled an artsy jet installation at the private terminal of Miami International Airport.
Together with the New York design studio Snarkitecture, NetJets showcased their innovative work on a Signature Series Global 5000 aircraft. The eye-catching piece beautifully blurred the lines between art, architecture and aviation.
“Snarkitecture decided to reimagine the exterior of a NetJets Global 5000 aircraft using the familiar yet remarkable concept of an ombre sky, the phenomenon seen while flying at dawn or dusk when the horizon appears to be graded in colour, subtly shifting from light to dark as the sun rises or sets.” – NetJets
LOUIS VUITTON OBJETS NOMADES
Maison Louis Vuitton is known and worldwide celebrated for reinventing itself with campaigns, fashion and events. But their heritage is the golden treasure and the most interesting part of the brand – for me and I guess for many others too. When heritage meets modern design and masterminds of art – then it’s called: OBJETS NOMADES.
During Art Basel Miami the exhibition was opened with a by-invitation-only party at the Louis Vuitton store in Miami’s Design District. New pieces, such as foldable furniture and travel accessories bring the heritage collection into new territory. The collection pays homage to the House’s special orders of the past, such as the iconic Bed Trunk or Wardrobe Trunk, and adds a defiantly contemporary spirit.
Louis Vuitton has collaborated with some of the most creative up-and-coming and established contemporary designers such as: Patricia Urquiola, Maarten Baas, the Campana Brothers, Barber and Osgerby, Damien Langlois-Meurinne, Atelier Oï, Nendo, Gwenaël Nicolas, Raw Edges, and Marcel Wanders.
“Sharing a sense of intuitiveness, desire and pleasure, Objets Nomades continue Louis Vuitton’s tradition of offering innovative and surprising designs to clients all over the world.” – Louis Vuitton.
